I am currently managing a key vacancy for one of the UK’s leading residential developers. Due to a marked increase in land acquisitions, we are looking for a Senior Planning Manager to join their land team. This is an opportunity to work for an award winning organisation that will build long standing residential developments which will be having a huge impact on local communities. Reporting to the Planning Director, the Senior Planning Manager will promote and achieve planning approval for the development of strategic land held within the Group portfolio across the business and assist in the identification and assessment of new land opportunities which have potential for future development.
Other responsibilities will include the review of site contracts and ensure that all sites are being promoted in line with the necessary contractual and planning obligations, keep landowners and/or agents informed as required by the contract, with reporting lines agreed with the appropriate Director, discuss development proposals for sites with local planning authorities and other relevant bodies, through formal or informal pre-application routes, manage the preparation, submission and determination of planning applications, including negotiation of Section 106 Agreements and any CIL agreements as appropriate.
The successful candidate will ideally be MRTPI and boast a strong track record of achievement with either a town planning consultancy and / or a UK based residential developer.
