Details for the position of conservation officer (planning policy)

Fixed term for 1.5 years
Salary: Grade F (£23,398 - £25,591 pa)

Cheltenham has a wide range of heritage assets ranging from formal Regency terraces to an interwar garden suburb. It has 2,600 listed buildings and seven conservation areas, one of which is the largest conservation area in Europe at just over 600 hectares. It is an exciting place for heritage professionals.

We are looking for a conservation officer to fill a vacancy in a small but busy team to help with the re-appraise of the town’s conservation areas and development of conservation policy.

The town is currently a thriving place to work, with a number of urban growth proposals, emerging local and strategic plans and a significant town centre transport and public realm project.

You will be based right in the heart of the conservation area on in a Grade II* Regency Terrace located on Cheltenham’s Promenade, with its bustling retail offer and open spaces. 

You will be skilled and self-motivated, ideally with experience in offering advice to the community, planners and the council generally on conservation area, listed building and related planning work.

You will be keen, knowledgeable and able to fit easily into the team. If you think you can help, we are interested to hear from you.

For an informal discussion phone Philip Stephenson on 01242 264379.
