Sample text

At the end of the 1980s it was evident that pure economic development strategies had already harmed the social and spatial conditions of some city districts. In Tarwewijk, as it was explained previously, the displacement of economic activities, unemployment, increasing out-migration of natives and the immigration of ethnic minorities, illegal practices, as well as property milking and speculation led to urban and housing decline during this and the following decade. Responding to the downgrading of inner city districts, the Problem Cumulatie Gebieden (Problem Accumulation Areas) programme was launched nationwide in 1986, followed by the Social Renewal Policy two years later fostering the activation of the residents and recognising the neighbourhood as an important medium to increase participation via the labour market and social relations (Musterd and Osterdof, 2008).

Alongside these new initiatives and endorsing them the Dutch Housing Memorandum What People Want, Where People Live was launched for the period of 2000 to 2010, setting out the pattern of housing policy and urban renewal for the coming decade, following the aims of the new urban renewal tactics rooted in the last decade. Under the provisions of the previous laws, memorandums and programmes, in 2002 an area-based initiative called 56 wijkenaanpak (neighbourhood approach) was set in action addressing specific districts.

The other fraction is owned by private owners (COS, 2009). In Tarwewijk houses have the lowest residential market value per square meter of the city (Aalbers, 2006). The great majority of the housing stock, 80 percent, was constructed before 1944 (COS, 2009). In Tarwewijk average income is also among the lowest in Rotterdam. , 2008). At least 14 percent of the inhabitants have social assistance. This is partly generated by the over-represented group of single-parents, which account for over half of the population, and the under-represented group of traditional families (Nicis, 2007).
