We seek to engage 4 Senior Land Use Planners to the division in Parramatta. 2 to join the Strategic Planning team and 2 to join the Development Assessment team.

You will be responsible for coordinating aspects of the business' response to urban planning and development occurring within a specific precinct or across the Sydney Region and for actively participating in negotiations with developers of urban development regarding the cost of managing attributable road travel demand.

The selection criteria includes; broad experience in integrated road transport and urban planning and development-related traffic impact assessment, demonstrated knowledge and understanding of NSW Government urban management agenda and associated legislation and the proven ability to lead and participate in multidisciplinary teams.

Key deliverables:

  • Ensure the department's requirements for land use plans and development consents are understood by the appropriate stakeholders by liaising and negotiating with internal staff, State Government, transport, environment and planning agencies, council officers, and public and private organisations.
  • Work collaboratively with other precincts to build a consistent approach to land use planning, assessment and management within the division.

Ideally you will have relevant tertiary qualifications in urban planning, engineering, transport planning or related discipline and relevant experience. Obviously you will have strong analytical and conceptual skills, with demonstrated ability to organise and undertake research as well as high-level written and verbal communication skills, including proven ability to deal tactfully and effectively with stakeholders.
