It will take more than the Olympics to raise Newham house prices

Blocks of public housing projects, known as council estates, are bisected by business streets lined with discount liquor stores, betting shops and fast-food outlets. Residents say improvements in Stratford are making it worse for the other parts of Newham by drawing people away.

An interesting piece in Bloomberg highlights Newham's poor property performance in spite of generally positive house price movements in London and particularly high hopes for the Olympic region. The west of Newham is more likely to benefit, according to a local agent, but poor facilities need to be improved in central and eastern areas (West Ham, Plaistow) if demand is to rise.
