Non-legislative action and next stages

The provisions in the Housing (Wales) Act need to be considered alongside our programme of non-legislative action and developments.

This includes:

  • more action to increase the supply of new homes, including the use of a range of innovative funding initiatives, including the Housing Finance Grant
  • more action to achieve the Welsh Housing Quality Standard
  • the Houses into Homes initiative initiative, an interest-free loan scheme for owners of empty homes
  • the development of the Help to Buy – Wales: Shared Equity scheme launched the end of 2013, to support home ownership and people who have struggled to secure a mortgage, helping them onto the property ladder by giving them access to low cost, affordable finance
  • a nationally branded, locally delivered, Property Improvement Loans scheme to be developed with local authorities and
  • strengthening the identification of local housing need through a Ministerial Statement on Local Housing Market Assessments made in spring 2013.
