After Brexit: Housing the nation

December 13th 2017

This paper gives a brief overview of the current policy context and challenges facing the construction and house building sectors in the light of Brexit.

The decision to leave the European Union will have profound effects on every part of industry in Wales and the UK, including the construction and housing sectors. This paper looks at the challenges facing the construction and house building sectors and offers a series of recommendations about what actions should be taken to ensure these sectors are prepared for Wales leaving the European Union.

Some general themes emerge, which are:

  • The need for effective skills plans for the sector and a new national strategy to drive up productivity.
  • The Welsh Government should publish guidelines that prioritise the disposal of land for housebuilding.
  • Finance needs to remain available at low cost, and across every geography and customer group to ensure the delivery of affordable homes.

The report was prepared in partnership with Community Housing Cymru.
