Waltham Forest is pursuing a challenging agenda for regeneration and growth across the borough with a desire to meet demanding housing targets through quality development. We are looking to recruit a Planning Policy Officer to carry out information and monitoring duties and support our Local Plan work. This is a career graded post. The successful candidate will be placed at a level commensurate with qualification, competency and experience, with opportunity to progress.
The role primarily involves collecting and collating planning data, maintaining and retrieving information from database systems and preparing regular monitoring reports. The Council provides a workplace culture that allows you to develop your career. You will have a crucial role in monitoring and analysing data to provide feedback on the effectiveness of planning policies and the preparation of the Council’s Local Plan and supplementary planning documents.
