Our client a busy Local Authority based in East Anglia, is seeking a Planning Lawyer to join their team for an initial three month assignment with the strong possibility of extension.

The scale of development within the area is unique and this is a great opportunity for candidates looking to further their experience on large strategic schemes within the public sector. Our client is looking for someone who can take on a reasonably large caseload (albeit at the less complex level) from day one.

The successful candidate will be required to pick up an existing caseload including:

  • Judicial reviews,
  • Planning inquiries and  enforcement,
  • Planning committee work,
  • Negotiation and completion of complex and high value s106 planning agreements,
  • s278 agreements.

Flexible working hours and working from home can be provided. Although this role is available on a locum basis, there is the potential for the role to become permanent.

If this sounds like your ideal next role, please get in touch by sending your CV in the first instance. You must be available to commence work on no more than two weeks’ notice. Holly –
