    The Welsh government has announced that over £100m is to be spent improving the stock of social housing in Wales.

    This money will be available for councils and housing associations to improve homes along with creating jobs and training opportunities, reports the BBC.

    The funding is part of a five year target for brining 200,000 social homes up to quality and safety standards.

    Housing minister Lesley Griffiths has already signalled her intention to end right to buy in Wales  to prevent the loss of local authority housing stock.

    Ms Griffiths said: “Investment in people’s homes has a far reaching impact – it is vital in improving the nation’s health and creating jobs and training opportunities.”

    However, Plaid Cymru housing spokesperson Jocelyn Davies said the £100m cash announced on Tuesday was simply “money that is distributed every year to bring social housing up to standard”.
