This chapter discusses the neighbourhood impacts of new immigration to the United Kingdom (UK). It aims to show that new immigrants are arriving from a broad range of countries and are also settling in neighbourhoods that have not formerly experienced significant immigrants. The discussion also demonstrates the dramatic scale and pace of change that is happening and the challenges which this raises for community cohesion.
