Two posts have become available in the Council's Highways Development Control Section offering an opportunity to undertake the technical analysis and negotiation/ liaison activity associated with the Council's role as a Statutory Consultee for planning applications, new estate street development and minor development related improvements of the highway network.
The roles may cover aspects of the assessment and monitoring of developer led new street projects and minor highway improvement schemes from the planning application stage, technical design approval, construction inspection and through to adoption as part of the public highway asset. Appraisal of planning submissions at all stages and the ability to offer clear, defensible technical advice will be an expectation for the successful applicants. You should have an appreciation of highway development control and planning processes together with new street and/ or highway design and specification. A firm grasp of the process of implementing development related street works and how these activities form part of the planning process and delivery of economic development would be an advantage.
Candidates will be expected to demonstrate appropriate technical knowledge and to be able to communicate this effectively to other Local Authority colleagues and the public in a clear and professional manner. The ability to work on your own initiative and as part of a team of engineers and technical officers to deliver projects and high quality responses within limited timeframes will be essential. Applications are invited from suitably experienced and qualified officers.
