Black and Minority Ethnic Housing needs and aspirations examines the housing needs and aspirations of Britain’s largest Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) populations. It sets out to identify how demographic, spatial and economic factors have influenced BME populations’ tenure patters to the date, and how changes in these patters may affect the demand for affordable housing from BME populations in the future. This paper also explores the ways in which BME households’ needs and preferences differ from those of White Britons.
