NNDC - A better place to work

North Norfolk is a beautiful rural District with a stunning coastline and attractive landscapes, yet still within easy reach of the bustling cosmopolitan city of Norwich.

We are seeking enthusiastic and driven individuals to join our forward thinking planning department here at North Norfolk District Council (NNDC). You will have good attention to detail and be able to work in your own initiative.

NNDC is looking to deliver growth to meet the needs of the local area over the next 20 years and working within Planning Policy you will be committed to delivering a sound local plan which makes NNDC’s aspirations real. You will have experience of developing Local Plan Policies and assessing potential site allocations to assist in delivering the new Local Plan for North Norfolk. Knowledge or experience of neighbourhood planning would be beneficial.

The opportunity to work within the Planning Department at NNDC is a real opportunity for someone who wants to be involved in making a difference to the future of the district.
