WHQS23

Welsh social housing landlords are facing significant challenges in meeting their targets in the upcoming years. The Welsh Government has underscored the magnitude of these challenges, with the introduction of WHQS23 in October 2023 representing one of the most substantial shifts in social housing standards in over two decades.

 

While certain aspects of WHQS23 remain consistent with previous standards, it also imposes a fresh and demanding set of criteria for social landlords to adhere to, encompassing additional requirements concerning Affordable Warmth and Environmental Impact, Flooring, Water Efficiency, Biodiversity, Active Travel, and Noise Nuisance.

 

There are a lot of changes around energy with additional requirements for landlords to produce a Whole Stock Assessment of Energy Performance and Target Energy Pathway for each property by March 2027.


Of particular note are the extensive changes pertaining to energy efficiency, with landlords now obligated to produce a Whole Stock Assessment of Energy Performance and Target Energy Pathway for each property by March 2027. This Target Energy Pathway outlines a road map for enhancing energy efficiency, including ensuring heating systems are economically viable, meeting specified standards for home heating, and minimising carbon emissions.
