Llywodraeth Cymru: £250miliwn tuag at 20,000 o gartrefi carbon isel i'w rhentu

Welsh Government Minister for Climate Change, Julie James, will visit one of Wales’ first ‘positive energy’ social housing schemes this morning, to demonstrate how it will double its spending on social housing for rent in 2021-22, for 20,000 new low carbon homes.

The ambitious plans will address a rising demand for housing and the climate crisis, providing good quality and affordable green homes to those who need them.

All homes will be built to bold new quality and environmental standards with the aim for some of the stock to go beyond net zero and produce more energy than they use. A further announcement on this is expected before the end of this month.

A press release and photographs will be provided to media circa 13:00 Wednesday 4th August for immediate release
