Blaby District is a prosperous and vibrant location offering fantastic opportunities for motivated and dynamic planning professionals. The District covers parts of the urban fringe of Leicester City, a range of other towns and villages and attractive rural countryside.
The Council already has an adopted core strategy, permission granted for a 4,250 home urban extension and a demonstrable 5 year land supply; however we are not stopping there. We will be taking forward some high priority projects over the next 12 months and beyond; seeking to enable business growth, and promote inward investment in the district.
The Senior Planning Officer role involves working proactively and with initiative to make clear, timely and quality decisions on planning and other applications.
