Welsh Housing Quality Standard (WHQS)

The Welsh Housing Quality Standard (WHQS) requires all social landlords to improve their housing stock to an acceptable level by 2020.  An annual report which includes information on the progress made by social landlords (local authorities and registered social landlords) in achieving the WHQS for all their stock can be seen here 

The Minister for Housing and Regeneration agreed the recommendations made to the Welsh Government and endorsed the recommendations made to social landlords contained in the social research report undertaken by Altair Ltd called the ‘Welsh Housing Quality Standard: Verification of progress in achieving the Standard’. Please see information here and please ask shea-jones@chcymru.org.uk if you would like more information on how the recommendations of the report have been implemented.
