Birmingham is changing….and fast! The second city is booming with a whole range of ambitious new development and regeneration initiatives. Are you interested in helping to shape our city for future generations?

We are looking to appoint people within the Planning and Development department. You will be working for one of the country’s largest planning authorities within a can-do Directorate that combines a range of service areas; all co-located in modern offices in the city centre.

You will have the opportunity to help deliver the City Council’s growth plans, which comprise the development of 51,000 new homes including a sustainable urban extension of 6,000 homes; major retail, office and leisure space including the £1bn Birmingham Smithfield city centre redevelopment; the award winning Birmingham Municipal Housing Trust which is our housing delivery vehicle that has built over 2,000 new homes since 2009; and £4bn of infrastructure projects including the extension of the Midland Metro tram system and the High Speed 2 railway network.

The Principal Planning Policy Officer will have a varied and interesting remit, including the production, implementation, and review of planning policies to support the sustainable growth of the City. The role will support the strategic planning process, cross-boundary joint working and involve the management of complex studies and projects. You will need to hold a degree in planning or a related discipline, be a corporate member of the RTPI, have a sound and up-to-date knowledge of planning legislation and substantial planning policy experience.
