Stratford and New Town in the East London Borough of Newham could be described as superdiverse, with residents not only of many different migration backgrounds but also varying legal statuses, educational and socio-economic backgrounds, etc. Of the 33,271 residents, only 20.9% are white British, 20.3% identify as South Asian and there is a considerable population of African and Caribbean background (18.8%). While many of these ethnic minorities arrived as part of postcolonial immigration since the 1950s, the area has seen a noticeable increase in recent years in Eastern European newcomers (which now comprise 20% of the population), Latin Americans and Africans. Despite the regeneration of the northern part of Stratford as part of the London Olympics in 2012, it continues to be one of the most deprived areas of the UK. While other areas of Newham have a large population originating in South Asia, visible by way of shops, mosques and temples, Stratford accommodates a higher diversity of newcomers, which is noticeable in infrastructural sites such as shops, English classes and immigration solicitors aimed at newcomers of all backgrounds.
