We’re partnering with local authorities to create thriving local spaces and services for citizens which go beyond expectations, improving productivity and outcomes for local communities across the UK.
We have an outstanding track record of providing development management, planning policy and consultancy services to over 100 local authority clients nationwide. Our work can see us partnering with up to 30 local authorities at any one time, working on a variety of contracts which allow our team to gain new skills in a range of locations, all with different planning constraints, plans and processes. You’ll build on and develop your skills quickly and there’s always a new challenge on the horizon for anyone who enjoys working in a fast-paced environment.
Our team of planners is helping communities to decide on the best way to use land and buildings, and make places work for everyone. We do this by supporting local authorities to become more resilient and better resourced for the future. Our work involves the full development management process, including validation, application, appeals and enforcement queries.
We help local authorities so that they can focus on what matters the most: shaping the places we live, work and play in. There’s a really large team here, from a variety of backgrounds, and we work with a huge number of clients, so there’s a lot of variety in what we do. You could be helping families to build their dream extension or your work might involve creating open spaces or new play parks.
You’ll be making a significant difference to communities, making areas safer and improving amenities for everyone who uses them.
