Welsh Assembly Government exceeds new affordable homes target a year early

The Welsh Assembly Government has exceeded its target of delivering 6,500 new affordable homes a year early.

2,472 additional affordable homes were provided between April 2009 and March 2010, making a total of 6,707 in just the first three years of the term of this government, exceeding the target of new homes by March 2011.

The Deputy Minister for Housing and Regeneration, Jocelyn Davies AM said: "We know that demand for affordable housing continues to grow and we need to deliver even more homes in future."

"With tightening budgets, this will prove quite a challenge but we are developing new ways in which we can attract other investment."
