Welsh Housing Quality Standard (WHQS)
- At 31 March 2013, 60 per cent of social housing dwellings (133,786(r) dwellings) were compliant with the WHQS (including acceptable fails). This compares with 42 per cent which were WHQS compliant (including acceptable fails) a year earlier.
- A greater percentage of registered social landlord (RSL) dwellings (75 per cent) had achieved WHQS compliance (including acceptable fails) at 31 March 2013 compared to 39 per cent of local authority dwellings.
- The components with the highest level of WHQS compliance (including acceptable fails) for all social landlords were ‘Windows‘ and ‘Mains powered smoke detectors’, whilst ‘Bathrooms’ and ‘Kitchens’ had the lowest compliance at 31 March 2013.
WHQS compliance figures for individual components have been revised. Following publication of the original report on 9th October 2013, it became apparent that a small number of landlords had reported compliance only relating to housing stock improved during 2012-13. However compliance figures should have related to all their housing stock. This information has now been corrected and the report was revised on 20 November 2013. The revisions have no impact on overall WHQS compliance.
(r) Revised 20 November 2013.
