This report presents the findings of a study of retail drug markets in deprived residential neighbourhoods, undertaken in late 2000/early 2001. The aims of the study were as follows: • To identify the extent of drug market activity in such neighbourhoods and to describe its nature and scale. • To draw out any associations between types of area and types of drug market. • To understand how drug market activity affects disadvantaged neighbourhoods. • To find out how local agencies and local communities, singly and jointly, are tackling drug markets and with what effect.
