Hours of work: 36 hours per week
Location: Civic Centre and other locations from time to time
Brent gets Building
Many people are drawn by the now famous arc of Wembley - a triumph in both architecture and in planning - and dream of walking down the former Wembley Way (now Olympic Way). Imagine if you could walk down it each day to work in the award winning Civic Centre, in an exciting regeneration area.
It's a great place to commute to; your choice from Wembley Park (Jubilee or Metropolitan lines), Wembley Central (Bakerloo or London Overground lines), Wembley Stadium train station (out to Beaconsfield in 20 mins or Marylebone in 15 mins). It has it all when it comes to finding the perfect location to commute in or outside London.
Regeneration, Regeneration, Regeneration!
Brent is now regarded as a great place for development and we have some big regeneration projects, across five growth areas and two housing zones. We also have varied urban topographies, a reservoir, a country park, conservation areas, listed buildings and town centres.
With so much growth, and with more to come, we are expanding our CIL/S106 infrastructure team. We are looking for another Principal Infrastructure Officer to help make sure that the necessary infrastructure is planned for, delivered, and monitored.
We have a great group of staff in the Planning Service. People like working here. You will be based in the modern offices at the Civic Centre and will enjoy the benefits of flexible working (working at home for up to two days a week).
Brent is a tremendously vibrant London borough. Spanning both inner and outer London, it is a borough of huge contrasts in terms of its economic, environmental, ethnic and social make up. Brent's diversity is evident to all who visit our borough and our long history of ethnic and cultural diversity has created a place that is truly unique and valued by those who live and work here.
As a Principal Planning Officer you will be one of four officers working on infrastructure, CIL and S106, within the Spatial Planning team. The work, amongst other things, involves developing the infrastructure priorities, assisting with the spend, helping with neighbourhood CIL, monitoring receipts and other non-financial clauses, and contributing to the Local Plan review.
We are looking for a principal planning officer to join a dynamic team. We need an experienced person with a sound knowledge of infrastructure planning, planning obligations and CIL. We need someone who can work well as part of a team and with colleagues around the council. You will also need a commitment to customer focus, and getting the best results for communities. Most of all, you will be someone who likes to help make things happen.
