During his time at LCA, Sam has been working on some of London’s largest planning projects, including the proposed relocation of the House of Lords, Grosvenor Estate’s proposals for a major site in Belgravia and Enfield Council’s estate rationalisation programme.

In addition, Sam has been working with a wide range of clients across the capital, including Cadogan Estates, Landsec, Redrow, Montreaux, Galliard Homes, Romulus, Westminster City Council and Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.
