Planning Lawyer 

Protecting the character of Elmbridge is important to our residents and to us and that’s what you will be doing as our Planning Lawyer.

Our draft Local Plan for Elmbridge has recently been approved by Council after years of consultation and debate. This Plan aims to enhance the character of borough; to take all that we love about Elmbridge – the 550 hectares of green space, commons and woodlands, the high streets, the sense of community - and find a way to enhance it, not only for the world we live in now, but also for the next 15 years. It has a sustainable and thriving Elmbridge at its heart.

You can be part of this journey as we work to become a more sustainable community with improved walking and cycling infrastructure, improved air quality in our homes and more electric vehicle chargers. The Plan offers Elmbridge the opportunity to embrace sustainable living and net zero more than ever and as our Planning Lawyer you will be part of the team making this happen.

We also want to bring that sustainability to our high streets, acknowledging that they are evolving beyond being places to shop. To thrive, they will need to offer retail, entertainment and socialising experiences. More than ever our commercial centres will provide that community buzz, that sense of togetherness and socialisation that makes Elmbridge a place people want to live, work and visit. You can be part of this!

Did we mention that you also get your birthday day off? A little treat from an organisation where people matter, where people make the difference.
