This paper is based on my studies of minority ethnic housing needs in the west end of Newcastle, and links these to the issue of low demand for social housing in the area. The minority ethnic population is expanding but barriers exist to its utilisation of social housing. In this paper, I reveal the diversity of socioeconomic and housing circumstances between different minority ethnic groups, and the particularly disadvantaged situation of the Bangladeshi population. I explore the barriers that exist to access to housing both in theoretical terms and in terms of the detailed social and residential geography of the west end of Newcastle, and I examine how the social and spatial location of ethnic minorities maps onto the patterns of low housing demand. Discussion of the policy implications suggests the block reallocation of areas of social housing to specific minority ethnic communities.
