New WHQ out now

The January issue of WHQ is hot off the presses featuring the 2016 Assembly election, the birth of a mutual in Merthyr, the story of Welsh housing and much, much more.

The cover feature previews the role of housing and regeneration in the May 2016 elections in Wales and beyond:

  • Jocelyn Davies and Sandy Mewies, two of housing’s best advocates who are both standing down as AMs, reflect on their time in the Assembly and offer some lessons for the future
  • Edwin O’Hart gives readers a sneak preview of the Homes for Wales campaign to drive housing up the political agenda
  • Graeme Brown explains the huge impact housing has made ahead of elections to the Scottish Parliament.

May also sees the official start of Merthyr Valleys Homes as a mutual organisation. Chair Nicola Evans explains the background to the creation of the first worker and tenant mutual in Wales plus what happens next.

This is the first WHQ since our 100th issue celebrations in November that included a reception in Cardiff Bay and a lecture at Cardiff University by Dr Peter Williams. Peter’s article based on the lecture takes the long view of housing from the start of WHQ in 1990 to the present and he then looks forward another 25 years to 2040.

The issues also reports on two new research reports from the Public Policy Institute for Wales: estimates for housing need and demand based on work by the late Alan Holmans; and understanding changing housing tenure.

Other features cover everything from health inequailities to void management and using technology to tackle anti-social behaviour to refinancing a stock transfer housing associations.

All this plus contributions from regular sponsors and partners on everything from homelessness to diversity and Supporting People to the Welsh Housing Awards make this a busy first issue of the year for WHQ.
