This briefing provides an overview of some of the key components currently being consulted on by the Welsh Government as it continues to develop the future standard for housing in Wales.
Since the early 2000s, the quality of social and affordable housing in Wales has been on a transformative journey. 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.
