Senior Building Design and Conservation Officer

The New Forest National Park has a distinctive local character made up of over 600 listed buildings and 20 Conservation Areas and many varied locally important features.

The National Park is home to over 35,000 people and includes large estates, busy villages and rural hamlets. We place a strong emphasis on good design in the National Park, illustrated by the adoption of a Park-wide Design Guide, several Village Design Statements and the annual New Forest National Park Building Design Awards.

This role provides an exciting opportunity to work for a National Park Authority with one of the highest caseloads in England. The statutory National Park purposes highlight the need for new development to conserve and enhance the built heritage of the New Forest and we are looking for an individual who has a passion for the built environment and an understanding of relevant legislation. Alongside providing specialist building design and conservation advice to support our statutory planning function, the role involves public engagement and consultation on initiatives to protect the built heritage of the New Forest as part of the our busy policy team.

We are looking for candidates who can demonstrate post qualification experience in a building design/conservation role and be a member of the Institute of Historic Building Conservation (IHBC).

In return we offer a range of benefits including flexible working hours, payment of professional fees, access to the Local Government Pension Scheme and free car parking at our offices located in the heart of Lymington.
