Abstract

This report reviews the progress of the Green Street Single Regeneration Budget
(SRB) programme, which started in 1995, and was now nearing completion in its fifth year at time of writing. As detailed in the initial bid, the Green Street SRB Programme aimed to tackle a number of key social, economic and physical problems within the area through the development of sixteen projects. The area covered, spans 6 wards within the London Borough of Newham and
encompasses a population of 22,500, 65% of whom are from ethnic minority communities. The report concludes that Green Street is a thriving shopping area with an improved variety of shops and restaurants, particularly for minority ethnic communities. The initiatives to address unemployment, environmental and crime problems have been less successful. High unemployment also remains a problem, although some of the benefits of the
projects may only be realised in the longer term.
