This chapter reveals the nuanced and complicated factors that shape the residential decisions and aspirations of various ethnic groups. It explores how the understandings of community have an impact on the perceptions of neighbourhood. The chapter is able to determine a commonality in housing aspirations between ethnic groups and a considerable desire for multi-ethnic neighbourhoods that conflicts with the ‘self-segregation’ and ‘parallel lives’ paradigms which underlie the community-cohesion agenda.

Keywords:   residential decisions, housing aspirations, ethnic groups, self-segregation, parallel lives
