Welsh Government has found a further £30M this year to invest in 20,000 sustainable homes. Carl Sargeant, minister for communities and children also joined with Community Housing Cymru and the WLGA to sign a Housing Supply Delivery pact, underlining the importance of partnership working in delivering 20,000 affordable homes during this term of Government.

The Welsh Government’s affordable housing target of 10,000 additional affordable homes in the last Assembly was exceeded, with the Housing Supply Pact between Welsh Government and Community Housing Cymru playing an important role in meeting that target.

Carl Sargeant said the new pact between the Welsh Local Government Association, Community Housing Cymru and the Welsh Government would support the achievement of the new target.
