Social housing in Wales

This paper looks at the social housing sector in Wales; in terms of its changing scale, ownership, governance, cost and quality. It does so in the context of evidence of unmet and emerging housing needs in Wales (and in particular the need for additional affordable, nonmarket housing) and in terms of recent trends in public investment in the sector. It also considers the delivery of additional social housing (primarily by housing associations and local authorities) and recent key policy developments (e.g. the ending of the Right-to-Buy in Wales). It concludes with some thoughts on possible policy priorities and the need to address current and evolving challenges in relation to social housing in Wales.
