A chartered town planner, you will lead an award-winning service and be passionate about serving our diverse communities, as well as innovative in your approach to working with developers and our residents to bring about positive, impactful change. Big housing targets, the arrival of Crossrail and a new cultural quarter offer great potential and the chance to be part of a borough that wants to do big things.


The Operational Director of Planning and Building will lead Redbridge’s Planning and Building Control services and have a wider remit as the Corporate Director of Regeneration and Culture’s deputy across regeneration, economic development, corporate property, capital delivery and leisure and culture services.

They will lead this work in a culturally and ethnically diverse borough and carefully balance the need to be efficient while being responsive to our residents.
