- The number of dwellings demolished across Wales in 2013-14 increased for the first time since 2010-11. During 2013-14, 221 dwellings were demolished, up by 87 per cent on the previous year.
- During 2013-14, 6 per cent fewer dwellings were assessed by local authorities under the Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS) than in the previous year. Of those that were assessed, the percentage that contained at least one Category 1 hazard rose from 36 per cent in 2012-13 to 38 per cent in 2013-14.
