The emerging Hong Kong diaspora in London: Understanding the early-stage interactions between Hong Kong immigrants under the British Nationals (Overseas) Visa scheme and the London housing market.
This dissertation aims to provide some empirical qualitative research into the interactions between Hong Kong immigrants under the British National (Overseas) Visa scheme and the London housing market. Results from structured questionnaire reveal that property location is shown to be the most significant housing determinant for new Hongkongers. However, spatially, there are signs of coethnic clustering in traditionally ‘homogenous’ neighbourhoods. Meanwhile, targeted interviews suggest that the London housing market is unable to accommodate to the housing demands of BNO immigrants both quantitatively and qualitatively. This dissertation concludes with a reflection of the London planning for housing system in terms of Local Planmaking and the Strategic Housing Market Assessment, and proposes several recommendations for the mid- to longterm planning for the housing impact brought by the continuing influx of Hong Kong immigrants.
