Development manager job advertised in Fylde

Michael Hunt

Fylde Borough Council are recruiting for a development manager which is a new post following a recent restructure.

The £40,000-a-year position will involve leading the development management team at the Lancashire-based authority, in order to deliver developments within agreed timescales.

In mid-October, Communities Secretary John Denham and regional minister Phil Woolas signed a multi area agreement establishing new powers and a business plan for the Fylde coast.

Tackling the benefit culture, shoddy rented housing and improving the tourism sector were among the priorities agreed by ministers and the four councils of Blackpool, Fylde, Wyre and Lancashire.

The formal document allows local authorities to pool funding and agree cross-boundary policies, as well as providing a stronger lobbying voice when going to Government.

Fylde Borough Council regard tourism as key to the local economy and believes the borough is becoming increasingly important with the development of Blackpool's International Airport being one of the notable schemes the position will involve developing.

Closing date for applications is 5pm on Monday 16 November.
