Secretary for Communities and Children sees progress at old fire station development

Communities and Children Secretary Carl Sargeant visited Caerphilly-based housing association United Welsh’s Old Fire Station development in Bargoed to see how work is progressing on the scheme.
Wednesday 01 June 2016

The 22 new apartments and houses will contribute to the Welsh Government’s challenging target of providing 20,000 new homes during this term of government.

Carl Sargeant said:

"Housing is so much more than bricks and mortar. Having a decent home in a safe community has been proven to have a positive influence on health and wellbeing and plays an important role in improving life chances. This is why providing people with a safe, warm and secure home is one of our key priorities and why we have pledged to provide a further 20,000 affordable homes during this term of government.

"Investing public money in building and refurbishing homes also contributes to national and local economies, creating and supporting jobs and training opportunities.

"Meeting this ambitious target will be quite a challenge, but it is one we are determined to meet head on. We believe long term partnerships can help deliver the accelerated rate of house building we need. We have a very positive and constructive relationship with our invaluable social landlords and I look forward to working closely with them to improve the lives of tenants."
