Job Summary

At Be First we see planning policy as a tool for unlocking and delivering major regeneration in the Borough. We want policy to be as nimble and effective as possible. It should not be treated as an immovable oracle, rather it should support and encourage LB Barking & Dagenham’s incredible and exciting regeneration opportunities.

We are looking for someone to oversee our spatial policy framework, drawing on the range of planning policy tools available, thinking of new innovative approaches, promoting digital planning,  LBBDs Zero Carbon agenda  and commissioning work from our Planning Panel of support consultants.

We have masterplans, Local Development Orders, local policy documents coming forward and are in the process of unlocking swathes of industrial land to deliver new sustainable mixed use neighbourhoods.  We want to tunnel the A13, support new economic sectors like film studios and food markets, enable a Freeport at Dagenham Dock.  Policy experience a must, in either a private or public setting.
