National Housing Strategy – ‘Improving Lives and Communities – Homes in Wales’
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.
This document sets out the challenges in:
- meeting Housing need;
- the priorities;
- the actions that will be taken; and
- the benefits of investing in housing.
And the priorities:
- providing more housing of the right type and offering more choice;
- improving homes and communities, including the energy efficiency of new and existing homes;
- improving housing-related services and support, particularly for vulnerable people and people from minority groups.
