An independent review to examine the current policies and practices for delivering affordable homes has been commissioned.

We have a target of building 20,000 new affordable homes over the course of this Assembly, but we want to lay the ground work for the prospect of setting even more stretching targets in the future, in response to a range of housing needs. We also want to continue to create a climate which drives innovation and improvements in terms of design, quality and energy efficiency.

To support this, a review of affordable housing supply has been commissioned by the Minister for Housing and Regeneration. To ensure that the review is fair, transparent and robust, an independent panel to oversee this work has been established. The panel will examine the approach we are currently taking, and recommend changes as it sees fit. 

The review will need to balance the growing need for affordable homes against a backdrop of continuing pressures on the public expenditure available to support house building.

The review will consult extensively with housing stakeholder groups and submit a final report summarising its recommendations to the Minister for Housing and Regeneration by the end of April 2019.

A ‘call for evidence’, which is part of the planned extensive engagement has been issued. All those with an interest in this work are encouraged to participate in this opportunity, by close of business on Friday 14 September 2018. The ‘call for evidence’ document below provides more details.
