Dear applicant

Thank you for considering an application for this important role at Waverley Borough Council.

This is an exciting time for us, as we make and implement plans for the future that will shape life in our borough for years to come.

This is a new role which brings together the Council’s Planning and Economic Development teams. This service drives forward the implementation of the Council’s Local Plan and new Economic Development Strategy. It will ensure that the borough’s special natural environment, character and heritage are at the heart of new development and infrastructure, while promoting a vibrant business and tourism offer.

With some significant developments in the pipeline, this key leadership role will strengthen the Council’s capacity to deliver its ‘Prosperity’ priorities. Partnership, with the community and with other agencies, will be critical to our success.

We offer an exceptional opportunity to make a visible impact on Waverley, both in the day-to-day role and as part of a high-performing Senior Management Team.

I am sure that, as you take a closer look at the breadth and scope of this opportunity, you will appreciate that this is no ordinary planning role.

I look forward to seeing your application.

With best wishes

Tom Horwood
Chief Executive
