HLP was appointed to prepare a blueprint for the Kensington area of Liverpool, part of the ‘inner core’ characterised by housing market failure and urban deprivation.
HLP developed a community-based masterplan through an intensive programme of community engagement. The plan was based on a neighbourhood approach and demonstrated a high degree of consensus for a range of projects aimed at regenerating 5 sub-neighbourhoods.
The blueprint embodied an implementation strategy and an urban design guide adopted by the community. It tackled a wide range of physical and social issues through an integrated approach with broad community support.
