Planning Officer

Hayden assesses small-scale Planning applications.
Hayden works as part of our Planning Service team, based in central Bath. He came to us from the private sector, and says that B&NES compares favourably as an employer. He values having the scope to manage his caseload independently, while always having access to team support when necessary.
All team members have access to RTPI (Royal Town Planning Institute) accredited training, and Hayden says that his varied work also offers plenty of opportunities for learning and professional development. He appreciates how Planning Services work in such an integrated way with other services, to deliver the best service to our communities. "The range of different Planning applications I deal with has helped further my understanding of the planning system, as well as recognising factors which may be raised in specialist areas, such as highways."
Hayden loves living in Bristol, like many of our staff, and enjoys the flexibility and travel savings of being able to work at home when he can. Having a choice of working hours and the central location of our Bath office help him to manage his commute.
