Infrastructure Planning Manager, London Borough of Waltham Forest

Waltham Forest is a vibrant East London borough, busting with culture, energy and opportunity. We are one of the fastest growing boroughs in London and pursuing an ambitious agenda for regeneration and sustainable growth. Central to this agenda is our drive to deliver the highest quality places, supported by the right strategic and local infrastructure to meet the needs of our diverse communities - both now and in the future.

About the Role

Working within the busy and ambitious Place and Design Team, you will play a leading role in ensuring the right infrastructure is secured and delivered to support growth in line with the projects identified in the Council’s Infrastructure Delivery Plan. You will work proactively with colleagues, partners, investors, developers and infrastructure providers to manage the Council’s approach to infrastructure planning, funding, and delivery. You will lead the team responsible for infrastructure planning, Section 106, CIL and information monitoring. You will develop, manage and deliver the programme for collection, monitoring and allocation of monies collected through S106 and CIL. You will provide the corporate lead for input into all relevant boards and committees. You will work with the Local Plan team to prepare, review, monitor and implement Local Plan Policy and take responsibility for the annual review of our Infrastructure Delivery Plan and Infrastructure Funding Statement. With a focus on delivery and maximising return on investment, you will play an influential role in delivering the infrastructure needed to support Waltham Forest’s ambitious growth plans and ensure that local communities receive the investment they need. You will deliver high quality, robust and transparent planning advice, recommendations and decision-making to ensure an excellent service for all our customers.


We are looking for candidates who are committed to Public Service. You will play a key role in addressing the most pressing challenges we face as a borough. This includes new responsibilities to keep our residents safe in the face of Covid-19a and implementing bold new initiatives to support our residents, as well as ensuring that we remain focussed on a long-term positive future for Waltham Forest.

Respecting Diversity is a core Council value.
