Gerald Eve

Gerald Eve has appointed one of the Greater London Authority’s senior planners to add further experienced resource to its planning and development team across London. Samantha (Sam) Wells joins Gerald Eve as a senior associate following a 20-year career in London local government, most recently at the Greater London Authority (GLA) where she spent nine years advising on a range of strategic planning applications. Her senior officer role at City Hall required close collaboration with the deputy mayors, borough leaders, senior council officers and other stakeholders, giving her a unique understanding of regional and local government politics and procedures across London. This role involved responsibility for strategic planning advice surrounding a number of significant regeneration projects along the South Bank including: the Shell Centre, King’s Reach, Elizabeth House and Battersea Power Station. Prior to the GLA, she spent an extensive period at Lambeth Council where she was lead officer for a number of large scale regeneration projects and mixed use applications around Brixton, Streatham, Vauxhall and Waterloo.
