The South Downs National Park offers a unique and fulfilling environment in which to establish your planning career. This is a challenging role and with an area covering over 100 miles, from the edge of Winchester to Eastbourne, and over 5,000 applications a year to process, it is easy to see why! In addition to the size and scale of the Park, we have a mix of work either being carried out in-house by our South Downs Planning Teams or through host authorities on our behalf, and in this role there is the opportunity to focus on different areas for delivery.

The South Downs is a unique National Park by virtue of the number of large settlements within its boundaries, and the opportunity for a wide variety of applications, including a significant number of major schemes, is a key element of the role. This position offers an ideal career opportunity to gain valuable experience of a wide cross-section of rural, and urban planning schemes and some complex enforcement cases, all within the unique context of a National Park. As a career grade role, your competency and progress in the post will be acknowledged and rewarded within the scheme and offers the opportunity for continuous personal development.

If this sounds like something that interests you and you think you can really add value to the role and meet the person specification, then this could be the right next step for your planning career.
