Wales & West Housing named largest builder of social homes for rent in Wales

We have been named Wales’s largest provider of homes for social rent by leading sector magazine Inside Housing.

For the second year running, Inside Housing’s Biggest Builders Survey has ranked us in the top 5 housing associations building the most homes for social rent in the UK.

Last year we completed 347 new homes across Wales putting us in the UK’s top 50, 311 of those were for social rent while the remainder were low-cost home ownership and market sales.

“I am proud that we have been ranked as Wales’s top housing association who are building homes for social rent. This shows that we are passionate about helping to solve the housing crisis in Wales.”

Some of our developments were at Ffordd Yr Haearn, Grangetown, Cardiff, Subway Road, Barry, Maes Y Môr extra care in Aberystwyth, Garth Owen in Newtown and The Grange in Rhyl.

We are also currently on site building 780 new homes across Wales, including sites at St Clears, Carmarthen, Caerphilly, Cardiff, Wrexham and Flintshire.

Joanna Davoile, our Director of Development, said: “I am proud that we have been ranked as Wales’s top housing association who are building homes for social rent. This shows that we are passionate about helping to solve the housing crisis in Wales.

“It is a testament to the determination and hard work of our development teams across Wales that, despite being one of the most challenging years for the construction industry, we have been able to provide hundreds of new homes for rent for people in need.

“We have ambitious development plans for the future too, as we continue to help Welsh Government deliver their target of 20,000 new affordable homes every year.”
