Welsh Conservatives respond to a new standard for building Affordable Homes in Wales

Responding to the Welsh Government’s announcement on new building standards for affordable homes, Welsh Conservative Shadow Minister for Climate Change, Janet Finch Saunders MS said:

“The housing crisis, and quality of homes, is one of the greatest barriers to social wellbeing in Wales, and over the years it’s hurt ordinary working people the most. “There is so much more that Labour ministers could have done over the past two decades to give people the security and stability that they need to flourish, so this announcement is long overdue. “It’s only right and proper that the Welsh Government ensures affordable housing in Wales is fit for purpose in the 21st century and we hope these new social homes will also be an important step towards a cleaner and greener future in Wales. “Ensuring homes are climate-friendly is imperative if Labour ministers are to deliver a net zero Wales by 2050.”
