Welsh Government: Further reading

A new approach in Wales to grant funding, improvements to housing quality standards, a 5 year rent policy and new affordable homes to be near zero carbon are some of the recommendations of the 'Independent Review of Affordable Housing Supply'.

There are also recommendations for the creation of an arms-length body to act as a hub for public sector land management and professional services.

The review looks at many aspects of affordable housing and its recommendations are designed to increase the delivery of affordable homes, and improve the analysis of local housing need in communities across Wales.

Lynn Pamment, who chaired the Independent Review of Affordable Housing Supply said - "This review offers Wales a unique opportunity to make ground-breaking improvements to the supply and quality of affordable housing, recommending longer-term certainty for local authorities and housing associations, whilst balancing the continuing pressures on the public spending available to support house building."
