Are you passionate about delivering change that has a long-lasting, positive impact on people’s lives and where they live? This is an exciting opportunity to join a service that has a direct influence on the way people travel around Brighton & Hove.
We are one of the busiest unitary Highway Authorities outside London and this role will be central to ensuring that the transport impacts of development projects within the city are well managed through agreed travel plans.
About the role
Join us in Brighton and Hove – a unique, energetic, diverse centre for culture in the South East and an exciting place to develop your career.
The city places emphasis on high-quality, forward-thinking, sustainable development and travel solutions. As a council we are committed to creating a more liveable city in which residents and visitors feel healthier, safer, more socially connected and included.
As Development Travel Plan Officer, you will ensure the traffic impacts of building construction projects in the city are well managed, helping to minimise any detrimental effects on the transport network and environment, and meet the diverse needs of our community. The role is also vital for improving perceptions of the city as a destination for investment and provides a rare opportunity to influence how development in the city is led.
You will have a good knowledge of transport planning and a keen focus on compliance. You’ll also have a strong customer ethos and excellent communication skills.
This role is part of a newly expanded team being established to respond flexibly and efficiently to the growing development demands of the city. As such, you may be interested in the other team roles being advertised alongside this post currently.
