Rushcliffe is an interesting and attractive mix of urban and rural areas set immediately south of the city of Nottingham. Much of the pleasant rolling countryside is protected by Green Belt, yet there is easy access to the vibrant City Centre. The Borough is rich in heritage assets with 30 Conservation Areas, over 680 entries on the list of Buildings of Special Architectural and Historic Interest and numerous buildings identified as being of local interest.

We are seeking exceptional candidates to meet the challenges, with a focus on delivering economic growth and excellent customer service.
The principal role of the Conservation Officer will be to deal with matters associated with the conservation of Heritage Assets within the Borough. This will include dealing with applications for Listed Building Consent, applications for work within Conservation Areas and reviewing/updating the Conservation Area Appraisals. In addition the role includes providing officers with advice on schemes affecting Heritage Assets and general design advice.
