- Statistics & Research
An annual report which includes information on the number of dwellings demolished and the condition of residential properties assessed by local authorities under the Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS).
- 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.
- Over the last four years, of those dwellings assessed under HHSRS, a higher percentage of assessments in dwellings occupied by a single household (non-HMOs) were found to contain at least one Category 1 hazard, than dwellings occupied by multiple households (HMOs).
- In 2013-14, local authorities reported 14,320 known HMOs across Wales, which is the highest number recorded to date. The overall number of licensed HMOs across Wales has more than doubled since 2008-09.
