Enfield’s Planning Service  - looking for talented Planners to help shape Enfield’s future

Enfield is the first London borough to be awarded £156m funding from the Government’s Housing Infrastructure Fund to unlock development growth in our borough; and this is just one part of the ambitious plans that we are developing to shape Enfield’s future. We are energised and passionate about quality place making and the role that planners can have in helping deliver this.

We’re are looking for exceptional candidates to make a contribution to our newly formed Planning Service, that brings together Development Management and Strategic Planning and Design to lead both new strategic policy and help guide projects through the planning process to delivery.

There’s more than one reason why we believe Enfield is a great place to live and work and why it has such an exciting future. Our attractive historic market town boasts a prime location with great transport links into central London. We host a myriad of assets from great green spaces, cultural venues and countryside including the Lee Valley Regional Park, a high performing industrial economy and a range of sites and opportunities for future development, growth and placemaking.

Enfield’s Planning Service is building its capacity to help deliver circa 30,000 new homes  through Enfield’s New Local Plan 2036,  area-wide regeneration and  high quality planning, design and heritage service to ensure successful placemaking and regeneration.   

We want to hear from applicants who can contribute  positively to the Planning Service's culture and exciting programme of work.
