Regeneration Project Officer
Wandsworth Council has an ambitious Housing delivery programme of which there are two flagship Estate Regeneration schemes delivering nearly 4000 homes between them as well as numerous other benefits such as a new leisure centre, libraries, schools and community centres.
The Regeneration team has continued to grow as each scheme moves through different stages of delivery with additional posts becoming available to meet the changing demands of the schemes. The regeneration project officer role is to assist in the delivery of the Council’s objectives for the regeneration programme. Specifically, the post relates to the delivery of the Winstanley and York Road Estates regeneration.
The post is part of a regeneration team working to the Regeneration Team Manager or Senior Project Officer for direction and to meet the priorities identified by the Regeneration Project Manager for Winstanley/York Road. Key roles are to undertake consultation and engagement with estate residents, neighbourhood residents and wider stakeholders, to assist with the successful and effective decant of estate residents in line with the phasing plan and to be responsible for the delivery of any individual regeneration theme objective and bespoke projects.
On the Winstanley and York Road the focus in this respect will be working within our Joint Venture partnership alongside our development partner, Taylor Wimpey, providing client management services to deliver the Councils regeneration development programme. This will include working on reserved matters applications within the overarching outline planning permission, delivery of new homes from RIBA stage 2-6 as lead council project officer, responsible for a casework load of residents in order to deliver the decant strategy and the long term goal of vacant possession as well as continually working to ensure effective communication and engagement with residents and stakeholders so as to deliver the councils regeneration objectives.
This is a career grade post intended to develop project management skills and it is expected that the post will take on individual projects as directed by the Regeneration Team Manager. It is intended that the range of work should enable the post holder to develop a wider knowledge of the regeneration field and appropriate training will be provided, subject to budget restrictions, where appropriate.
