Walsall Council’s Corporate Plan recognises ‘Inclusive Economic Growth’ as one of its core priorities. Indeed, the economy matters across all outcomes for the Council and its partners.  Together with this commitment, we have the drive and ambition to make the most of all local, regional and national opportunities and ensure delivery. We enjoy fantastic working relationships with our Black Country LEP partners and the newly formed West Midlands Combined Authority and have a reputation as a place that gets things done.

The Regeneration and Development Service has recently embarked on redesign our structure and this has created some new and exciting opportunities. So we are seeking key officers to join that effort, roll up their sleeves and get stuck in. If that sounds like you, we look forward to hearing from you.

We are seeking to appoint a built conservation and heritage expert to take a leading role in ensuring development within Walsall meets the highest standard and contributes to conservation of our historic environment. You will take a lead in building conservation matters in providing advice to Development Management, to developers, and others in respect of planning applications and proposals.  As part of the Planning Policy function, you will provide important advice and guidance in the preparation of development plan documents and in the application of policy and legislation.

Working in an urban environment and in a borough with a strong industrial heritage, you will provide a pragmatic approach to supporting Walsall’s regeneration and development plans. You should possess excellent analytical abilities and be able to demonstrate good communication skills.
