Annie Hampson is the City of London Corporation’s Chief Planning Officer and Development Director responsible for development, design, heritage, conservation and enforcement matters.
She was involved in the City’s evolution in providing modern, innovative and effective buildings resulting in the redevelopment of over a third of the City’s building stock whilst safeguarding its historic character and considerably enhancing its street scene and retail diversity.
Annie has dealt with some of the most high profile, high value developments in the country, including the Gherkin, Paternoster Square, the Eastern Cluster towers. She also dealt with Merrill Lynch’s headquarters, a significant success in that it included the largest dealing floors in Europe, but knitted around a scheduled ancient monument, Grade I and II listed buildings in a conservation area, dealing with at the same time, the Millennium Bridge.
Annie is the Local Authority advisor on the CofE London Diocesan Advisory Committee (the Church’s equivalent of a planning committee) and is on the Association of London Borough Planning Officers and the Major Developers Group organised by Sir Stuart Lipton.
