Are you looking to start a career in town planning? Experience of working in a planning environment or a town planning degree would be desirable but not essential to this role of Development Management Planner. The main characteristics we’re looking for are an interest in the built environment, self-motivation and a willingness to learn on the job.

You’ll be dealing with a caseload of householder and simple applications. We are looking for someone who is hard working, enthusiastic and can fit into a team that thrives on collaboration. The planning team is recognised within the Council as being vital to the continued growth of the city and you will play a part in that.

Peterborough is a unique combination of a New Town with a historic medieval core. It is currently experiencing considerable investment in the city centre, including a new university, and experiencing the growth of new urban extensions on the edge of the city. The enviable parkway and cycleway networks mean you can get around Peterborough in next to no time. Located on the A1 and the East Coast Main Line, we are in a highly accessible location that makes us an attractive location for new business and homes. We have been wearing our green credentials proudly for some years and are developing new environmental projects for the future.

Our friendly team are based in smart new offices at Fletton Quays or working from home. A high level of remote working can be accommodated. A highly competitive salary is on offer to the right person..

We are proud to serve the diverse communities of Cambridgeshire/Peterborough and want our workforce to reflect this diversity, which we believe is beneficial for our employees, the organisation and the communities we serve.
