Notting Barns South scheme is part of wider regeneration of poorer parts of the wealthy London borough

Design practice Urban Initiatives has won a contract to masterplan a project in the London borough of Kensington and Chelsea.

The local authority has appointed the firm to create a plan for Notting Barns South, an 18ha site in one of the wealthy borough's poorer parts.

It has been asked to make plans to upgrade social housing, improve amenities and build new space for local businesses as part of the wider regeneration of north Kensington.

The scheme aims to be self-financing through the sale of market housing.
