Tewkesbury Borough is a great place to work in planning. As the main growth centre at the economic heart of Gloucestershire, we face a challenging and exciting development agenda.

With an exceptional built and natural environment, the Borough contains a rich diversity of areas including large parts of the Cotswold A.O.N.B and Severn Vale, 14 conservation areas, some 1800 listed heritage assets and the historic market towns of Tewkesbury and Winchcombe. Tewkesbury itself is famous for its Norman Abbey and its pivotal role in the War of the Roses.  

Along with this stunning environment and rich history there is huge development pressure. Tewkesbury Borough is at the heart of the M5 economic growth corridor and is preparing to manage up to 40% of Gloucestershire’s entire growth through the recently adopted Joint Core Strategy developed with our neighbours at Gloucester and Cheltenham.

Planning enforcement is of course crucial to the successful delivery of new development and we are looking to recruit an enthusiastic and proactive planning enforcement professional with a flair for positive decision-making to help with our varied and challenging work.

The successful candidate will take a lead on the enforcement service, managing and supporting our planning enforcement officers. In addition to delivering an effective service you will also help raise the profile of the planning enforcement team and the work that they so, whilst also seeking to review working practices so that we can offer the best possible service to our customers.

The area is also a great place to live with the Cotswolds, Malvern Hills and Forest of Dean on the doorstep, alongside easy access to Birmingham, Bristol and beyond!

For an informal discussion about the post, please contact Development Manager, Paul Skelton, on 01684 272102 or Development Management Team Leader, John Hinett, on 01684 272105.
