Calderdale is delivering an ambitious transport infrastructure programme through the West Yorkshire Plus Transport Fund (WY+TF) which could see over GBP 200m invested into the Borough over the next 5-10 years.
You will provide strategic and operational advice on all aspects of land and property associated with the WY+TF programme.
You will be responsible for leading and advising on the significant land/property acquisitions required for, or associated with the (WY+TF) projects. It is essential therefore to have an understanding of Compulsory Purchase, land assembly processes and procedures.
You will carry out all aspects of estate management related work, including undertaking valuations, negotiations and providing expert advice in respect of potential land/property acquisitions.
You will ensure that the acquisition of land/property in connection with the WY+TF is in line with the fund’s objectives and makes an effective contribution to the regeneration ambitions of the Council. You will drive the land assembly to ensure it is delivered in a timely manner to ensure the projects can be delivered within their agreed programme.
We are looking for a colleague with strong customer focus to promote the service and WY+TF positively and proactively. You will be expected to work with partners, stakeholders, internal and external clients and have excellent communication skills.
You will also have experience of working within an asset management environment and have membership of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) or equivalent.
