We are looking for an experienced and creative planning professional to help lead the production, examination and adoption of the Copeland Local Plan.

Copeland is a place that is committed to growth and is open for business. Already acknowledged as a Centre of Nuclear Excellence and with one of the fastest growing economies in the UK the Council is working hard to deliver new development and secure a sustainable legacy for its communities. Copeland also benefits from an outstanding landscape and stunning coastline, with two thirds of the Borough falling within the Lake District National Park.

Following a restructure and modernisation of the planning teams we are looking to recruit three motivated, driven professionals to provide extra capacity to deliver our ambitious growth agenda. We would welcome applicants who are keen to progress and would thrive on a challenging and varied workload.  All three roles will also have opportunities to support the Council’s planning input into the proposed Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects.

Closing date: 14 July 2017
