What you need to know about Welsh Housing Quality Standard 2023

The Welsh Housing Quality Standard (WHQS) was introduced in 2002 with an initial deadline of 2012. Still, variations initially hampered progress in interpreting the standard and a lack of monitoring data. This saw the deadline change to 2020, and with the impact of the pandemic, this then moved to 2021. By this point, 99% of social housing in Wales met the standard.
