Job Description

Public Sector People are currently working with a council located in the Outer West suburbs of Melbourne. This council are seeking a Band 7 planner to come aboard their Major Development team on a six month contract.
This is a council experiencing substantial growth and you will gain exposure to a niche area of planning separate to plain statutory planning. The Major Developments team deal with planning proposals within Council's growth areas.  Future use/development are controlled by Precinct Structure Plans and Development Contribution Plans, so this is a project management approach to planning.
This is a close knit team with a great culture, council can also offer flexible working hours for those who have other commitments.
Requirements Include:
  • Tertiary qualification in Town Planning, Urban Studies, Environmental Planning or related discipline.
  • Victorian Statutory Planning experience is essential to the success of applications received.
  • Excellent communication skills, both verbally and written.
  • Growth area experience is highly desirable, but not essential.
Benefits Include:
  • Benefit from a supportive and collaborative culture within Local Government.
  • Gain growth area experience in a metro council for your CV.
  • Attractive hourly rate and flexible hours available.
