The poll of 337 UK-based chartered planners working in both the public and private sectors reveals that 19 per cent of the former are thinking about a move away from the profession.
Only 11 per cent of private sector planners working for planning consultancies or other private firms said that they were considering such a move.
The annual poll on wages and conditions also reveals that the median pay bracket for public sector planners, almost 90 per cent of which worked for local authorities, is £35-£40,000. This is the same as 2015’s figure for council planners.
In the private sector this year, the median pay bracket is also £35,000 to £40,000, a drop from last year’s level of £40,001 to £45,000.
