Planning Officer, CPRE Kent

Salary: £35,000 – £39,000K

Charing, Kent

Closing date:  Extended until Monday 31 August 2020
Interview date: Probably the first week in September TBC

How can we build the homes we need, while protecting the countryside and the wider environment for future generations? We live in times of unprecedented development pressure and with far-reaching reforms to planning law and policy expected in the forthcoming Planning White Paper.

CPRE Kent is seeking a planning officer to join their small and dedicated team. We need someone who will work alongside staff, trustees and volunteers to help shape planning policy in Kent and beyond through participating in consultations and examinations of Local Plans, and to help engage with planning issues within Kent and Medway, and beyond. We work locally and nationally.

Ideally you will be a qualified planning professional with experience in both development control and strategic planning. Most importantly you will share our commitment to a future where the countryside is respected for its own intrinsic value, and where the development that we need contributes to sustainable communities that are fit for the 21st century, our collective response to the climate emergency and the need for a genuinely green recovery from economic downturn.
