About the role
You’ll be responsible for assessing major development proposals and preparing technical statutory highway consultation responses on planning applications in Buckinghamshire. You’ll work with developers, consultants, district councils and government agencies providing strategic highway and transportation advice relating to planned development across the County.

As Team Leader you’ll be required to proactively manage resources, including the development of skills and capabilities of others, as well as ability to drive forward continuous improvement of the service.
