Abstract

This study of migrants’ settlement into the London area as captured by the latest, 2011 census adopts two approaches to demonstrate a nuanced concentric pattern in the location of migrants from different parts of the world. First, the differentiation of migrants into stylised categories of “rich-country” and “poor-country” migrants reveals distinct patterns of settlement for each; and second, an examination at the scale of the metropolitan region shows that these patterns operate differently inside and outside the Green Belt for both categories of migrants, demonstrating the importance of analysing migrants’ settlement patterns at this scale. The most important change in settlement patterns to have taken place in the ten years since the earlier, 2001 census is the role taken up by a number of commuter town centres outside the Green Belt in receiving recent arrivals of “poor-country” migrants, with implications for the infrastructure and labour economies of these districts.
