Description :
This article explores the impact of the built environment and zoning plans on local businesses in pre-war and post-war residential neighbourhoods in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague and Utrecht. Quantitative and qualitative methodologies are combined using available firm data from trade registers of the Dutch chambers of commerce, reviewing neighbourhood zoning regulations and conducting focus group and individual interviews with neighbourhood experts and entrepreneurs. It is found that the built and regulatory environment of migrant neighbourhoods does indeed appear to impact significantly on the chances of setting up a business and its subsequent fate.
