- There continued to be a very slight increase in socially rented housing stock, with just under 227,000 social landlord dwellings, bedsits and bed spaces (i.e. housing units) in Wales, at 31 March 2015. Since March 2014, socially rented housing stock has increased by 0.3 per cent, resulting in an average availability of 17 social rented housing units per 100 households across Wales.
- At 31 March 2015, RSLs continued to own 61 per cent of all social rented housing stock and owned all social housing in half of the authorities across Wales.
- Since 2003-04, rent levels of self-contained social rented housing has increased across all property types. Over the last year, the highest percentage increase in weekly rents has been for local authority self-contained properties, which were up by around £3.25 per week compared with the previous year.
- Local authority rent levels for self-contained general needs housing remained below those of the RSLs, though the gap decreased slightly, with the overall average rent of £79.92 per week for 2015-16, compared to £82.05 for RSLs.
