We have an exciting opportunity to join Wakefield Council as an Urban Designer as we implement our new Local Plan and progress as a Design Code Pathfinder authority. Within the Planning Policy and Environment Team this new role will work with a range of specialists in the historic environment, landscapes, planning, ecology and arboriculture.

The Wakefield district, located in West Yorkshire, has rich historic, cultural and natural heritage including diverse landscapes, wildlife and habitats. These provide opportunities to become involved in varied work areas to influence a wide range of development proposals. The district includes urban areas such as the City of Wakefield, the Five Towns and historic market towns as well as a range of settlements within wide-ranging rural areas. There are ambitious plans for housing and employment growth within the Wakefield district whilst recognising the importance of high quality design and the protection of valuable open spaces.

You will have a key role ensuring high quality design through the creation of a district-wide Design Code, assessing and influencing developer masterplans through the planning applications process and updating design evidence. The role will also include influencing the delivery of council-led masterplans and regeneration work through the planning process.

We are therefore seeking a passionate and dedicated individual, with relevant qualifications and experience, to join our ambitious and enthusiastic team.
