About Active Design Manager

Our vision is to create a vibrant, healthy and prosperous Yorkshire through sport. We do this through working with a wide range of partners to help make sport and physical activity an everyday part of people's lives.

We recognise the huge influence that the physical environment and place have on people's capacity and enthusiasm to be more physically active. There will be opportunities opening up in our cities and districts where there is significant development and growth taking place and we need to ensure physical activity and sport is embedded throughout.

Our area is made up of nine metropolitan local authorities each with their own planning departments with Local Plan's and supporting evidence bases at various stages of development. In many of them our local partners have been successful in embedding physical activity within the Local Plans and ongoing communication is taking place.

We want to add further support through interpreting Active Design guidelines, giving specific advice and guidance on plans and developments that can make a big impact on how people can be active. We also want to influence policies and plans as they arise and where we can add value.

We are therefore looking for someone who understands the planning system and can give advice on specific designs to ensure physical activity is embedded throughout.
