Leherheide-West is one of the socially disadvantaged parts of Bremerhaven, with an above-average level of unemployed people and migrants. The suburb is also disproportionately hard-hit by shrinkage. Without intervention, it is likely that the centre of the district will become a total wasteland within a few years. The consequence would be the loss of numerous jobs close to where people live. Leherheide-West is already having problems, and the loss of a functioning centre would mean a substantial decline in standards of living and residential quality.
The process of restructuring involves the redesign of the old weekly market, the demolition and rebuilding of the district library, which has a symbolic function in a district whose residents lack education, and supporting measures such as public relations work.
