We are currently recruiting for a Major Project Officer and DM Team Leader. Each role will provide rewarding opportunities to build experience and further your career. If you are a forward thinking, customer focused Planner who can enable appropriate development in a high class environment we would like to hear from you
Torridge District Council area covers some of the most spectacular unspoilt coastline and countryside in Devon, most of which is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. The region is a popular tourist destination, with rural businesses drawing upon this asset.
Our Draft Local Plan has been submitted and the initial hearing by the Planning Inspectorate has taken place. In order to deliver the Authority’s visions set out in the plan we are restructuring the Development Management Team. The Authority is currently dealing with major house building schemes, planning and facilitating new recreational and sports facilities, town centre regeneration schemes, marine based projects and employment growth in both urban and rural. We have a very positive outlook towards development – put most simply we want to say yes to good development that is going to benefit the people who live and work here, whilst not impacting negatively on the wonderful environment we all enjoy.
If you are the person for us, then we will do our very best to find a working arrangement that helps you balance your work and your life. This could include, for example, compressed hours and in any event a flexible working scheme that is generally regarded as a key benefit by colleagues.
