Housing needs and aspirations of ethnic minority communities
The housing needs and aspirations of Britain’s large black and minority ethnic (BME) communities differ from those of white British communities. This seventh paper in the Planning for the Future series looks at these differences. It shows how demographic, spatial and economic factors have influenced BME tenure patterns, and how changes in these patterns will affect their demand for affordable housing in the future. The paper makes reference to the whole of the UK (for example, in discussing migration), but the figures in the text and the detailed commentary relate to England.
