Client Details

My client is a Local Authority based in Leicestershire with sound financial footing, and it is looking secure this footing further, whilst simultaneously improving their services.

  • Professional responsibility for the management of the Development Control Team
  • Responsible for the supervision of Development Control Team staff
  • To allocate planning applications, planning appeals, public enquiries and other work streams to individual Development Control Officers and also to task the Planning Enforcement Officer and Arboricultural Officer - all having regard to their current and foreseeable workload. To monitor that workload and to adjust as necessary.
  • To act as Case Officer in administering major and more complex planning applications and comparable matters, including to prepare evidence and represent the Council at planning appeals and public enquiries


The ideal candidate will need to be a strong leader with experience of working in a development control environment. You will have a sound understanding of Planning Legislation, Regulations and Government Guidance and the ability to apply this knowledge to the role.
