At Welwyn Hatfield we’re steeped in planning heritage but we’re not standing still.
Welwyn Garden City was established one hundred years ago and embodies the visionary principles of pioneering urban planner Ebenezer Howard whilst Hatfield is a post-war new town designated under the 1946 New Towns Act.
Now is a great time to join our planning team. With a new Head of Planning, a new local plan on the cusp of adoption and major regeneration already under way in our town centers we are looking forward to an exciting future.
We offer a range of benefits from agile working arrangements to generous annual leave entitlement and we are currently consulting our staff on future working arrangements to ensure we get the right balance of office and home working going forward.
Our offices are located within a beautiful, historic Garden City, brimming with culture and opportunity. This sought-after location is a popular place to live, raise a family and work. If you are interested in working in a high performance authority that at the same time values and delivers high quality development while seeking to enhance our New Town and Garden City environments, we want to hear from you.
In this role, you’ll enjoy the challenge of working in a small but busy team, with opportunities to work on both rural and urban projects. You will have primary responsibility for managing your own case load of applications, carrying out site inspections, dealing with requests, complaints and enquires received and representing the Council at planning appeals.
To be successful in this role, you will need excellent communication skills and be able to work in an ordered and logical way. Along with front line customer service experience, you will need excellent IT skills and be flexible to support the service. You will also need a full driving licence and access to a car.
