We are a large, diverse outer London Borough with inner London challenges and big ambitions. With one of London’s largest regeneration projects in Meridian Water, a substantial estate renewal and home-building programme, the introduction of 40km of segregated cycle ways and a £1.5b property estate review, so much is happening in Enfield. We are looking for ambitious and dynamic individuals who can strengthen our placemaking approach to deliver the sustainable neighbourhoods, economic growth and infrastructure our residents need.

In a newly established role, you will lead our approach to strategic planning and design in a collaborative way across the Council. Enfield’s huge level of growth will accelerate, and you will be instrumental in building up the service and its capacity to innovate, as well as deliver. Experience in planning policy is required as you lead production of the Local Plan, Infrastructure Delivery Plan and related policy and guidance. You will also understand the role that good design plays in the delivery of successful planning and placemaking and be confident in engaging and persuading – as well as carefully listening to - your audiences.
