Camden is building somewhere everyone can thrive, by making our borough the best place to live, work, study and visit. Because, we’re not just home to the UK’s fast-growing economy. We’re home to the most important conversations happening today. And we’re making radical social change a reality, so that nobody gets left behind. As a Senior Planner you will work on supporting longer term recovery and re-imagining of Camden’s highstreets.
This is an exciting opportunity to join the Regeneration & Place Service within the London Borough of Camden.
The service leads the placeshaping agenda for the borough, with a focus on key town centres and areas of growth including Euston, the central London Area, Kentish Town, Camden Town, Gospel Oak and West Hamsptead.
Camden Council has commenced the Camden Future High Streets programme, to support our high streets through the pandemic and into a robust recovery and re-imagined future. Our vision is for Camden’s high streets and town centres to be ready to face the future.
We want them to be at the heart of their communities with all our residents able to reach their local centre by walking or cycling in 15 minutes or less. We want the highstreets of the future to be inclusive places where the community can come together to shop, socialise, share knowledge, work and play.
We are recruiting within the Regeneration & Place Service to work on the future high streets programme and other work of the service as required.
Involving close working with local communities and businesses, this is a work area that cuts across Council Services including planning, transport & highways, economic development, arts & culture, events, licensing, sustainability and regeneration. However, the Council cannot do this work alone and the programme requires extensive working with local partners including, Business Improvement Districts, major landowners, local groups and voluntary organisations.
Over the next 12 months we are looking to deliver a wide programme of high street activity and interventions. The programme in looking at activating vacant space, building social value in the high street, sustainable travel, creating entrepreneurial job and training opportunities, digital high streets, circular economy, high street promotion and creating attractive environments where people want to come and spend time.
We are taking a test and learn and place-based approach, being prepared to trial interventions to see works. The team works in a responsive, agile and collaborative team setting to achieve the best outcomes possible for our communities.
We are looking for a pro-active, regeneration practitioner to join our dynamic team and play a leading role in the future highstreets programme and other work of the service as required.
A main responsibility of the role will be to devise and deliver a programme of coordinated high street projects in line with Camden’s Future High Street Vision and objectives.
