Improving Lives and Communities: Housing in Wales

There have been substantial policy and programme developments in housing in recent years and changes in the economic conditions affecting the housing market in Wales and the UK. Launched in April 2010 this document sets out the challenges in meeting Wales’ housing requirements, the priorities and the actions that will be taken. However investing in housing is not only about bricks and mortar issues; besides improving people’s homes, it brings benefits for people too, contributing to improving their health, well being and quality of life.

Investing public money in building and refurbishing homes also contributes to national and local economies, creating and supporting jobs and training opportunities. It helps regenerate communities, improving the way they look, their safety, and helping people feel good about where they live.
