Haringey is rich in diversity, heritage, culture and opportunity, maybe more so than any other London borough. Haringey is our home and we’re proud of it. As a Council, we’re ambitious for our borough’s future and for the people who live and work here.

We are looking for individuals to join recently appointed directors to work across the authority to deliver the Council's ambitious plans. 

You will be responsible for developing and delivering Haringey’s Local Plan, the Climate Change Action Plan with a target for the Borough to be zero carbon by 2041 and our Walking and Cycling Action Plan.   As Chief Planner you will work closely with the Corporate Director for Housing, Regeneration and Planning to lead a multidisciplinary team on all aspects of Planning, Building Control, Development Management, Strategic transport and sustainability.
