Build more houses

Affordable housing is not generally available, yet the demand is high. Welsh Government should institute a supported scheme to either allow Local Authorities to build and retain new social housing, or provide greater support to Housing Associations to allow them to construct more homes.

Additionally there should be in each Local Authority a stock of short term, emergency accommodation to cope with a range of  crises, such as domestic violence, marital breakdown or homelessness.

Why the contribution is important

It is important because the current situation has reached a critical level. Private landlords are raising rents, and the supply of social housing is practically non existent.

    Obviously would be accompanied by a cessation of the Right to Buy, except in relation to a limited number of partnership ownership with Housing Associations.
