People in the lowest income groups are increasingly overrepresented in council housing. Therefore area-based poverty has grown: housing, income and social factors interact to create steep decline. Local authorities and central government developed special experiments which had a measurable impact on conditions. Estates with the least favourable conditions receive more intensive services. If localisation of services was extended to all low-income estates, it would maximise the impact of collective provision on vulnerable communities
