The information provided means that the assessment of the social housing situation in all the neighbourhoods planned at the end of the process has been achieved.
The study notably highlights 3 issues for encouraging social diversity in these areas of Paris:

  • The question of social housing allocation. This is an important lever: almost 3,000 social housing units are allocated each year in these areas (2,000 in units that exist already and 1,000 in “new” housing). 
  • The question of social diversity in new programmes. Although neighbourhoods are already provided with a lot of social housing, the level of production has been maintained during recent years, orientated more towards the middle classes and student residences, with the aim of diversifying the housing offer in these areas.
  • The question of housing stock occupancy. Overcrowding and under-occupancy are disproportionately represented in the social housing stock in these areas.
