Welsh Government: Further reading

Minister for Housing and Local Government Julie James has announced more than £20 million through the Land for Housing scheme to help housing associations buy land to build more homes across Wales.

The Land for Housing scheme provides loan funding to housing associations to enable them to buy land to develop affordable and market housing.

The funding is recycled as loans are repaid, so that more land can be purchased and more homes built.

The Welsh Government is investing an extra £10 million in 2019/20, together with recycled funds from the repayment of previous loan awards.
