About the role

Hammersmith and Fulham is a borough that benefits enormously from a rich diversity of iconic buildings, conservation areas, successful businesses, major centres of health and education and three famous football teams.  It is also a highly desirable place to live.  Constantly evolving and reshaping itself to meet the needs of its changing population in what is one of London’s most densely populated areas.

About you

As a planning professional, you have a sound knowledge of the trends, developments, political and legislative issues affecting Town Planning and understand how these impact on the Borough’s development opportunities.
