This is an exciting time for Gloucestershire which is poised to deliver an ambitious growth plan over the next 5 years. As part of this drive, GCC has been transforming how it manages its planning obligations function. This is an important element of how it makes a positive contribution to sustainable economic development and investor/business confidence

This post will lead and continue to enhance GCC’s developer contributions function. As an ambassador for the Council’s Local Developer Guide, liaising with developers and planning applicants, the role ensures that new developments make a reasonable resource contribution to the provision of community infrastructure and services which are the responsibility of GCC.

Working as an integral part of the Strategic Infrastructure Management Team, you will act as the principal contact and ‘expert’ on such matters, presenting and defending GCC’s requirements, working closely with the local planning authorities, applicants, elected Members and senior management.


In addition to a good grounding in the operations of the planning system, including national and local legislation relating to planning obligations and CIL, it is expected that you will be a skilled communicator/negotiator and creative thinker. Fundamentally however, you will need to be a self starter and an accomplished strategist, able to know when to engage proactively, be reactive, exert influence and/or deploy external, expert technical support.


In return, you’ll be welcomed into a small, but dynamic team of highly professional staff committed to working with public and private sector partners to make a difference to the future economic prosperity of the County.
