A partnership approach is needed to address the particular housing needs of Wales, delegates at a fringe session during Plaid Cymru's annual conference heard last week.

Wales has some of the poorest housing in Europe, plus a great diversity of housing needs,the Chartered Institute of Housing said.

CIH in Wales, discussed the role of partnerships with Shelter Care and Repair Cymru and chair of the session Selwyn Jones said the degree and extent of housing need should not be forgotten in the debate about how housing policy is developed and implemented by the Welsh Assembly.

Fringe delegates noted there was now a chance to look at radical options for how housing might be dealt with by the Assembly but it needed co-ordination of strategy and policy at all levels to ensure partnerships would work to best effect.

CIH Wales policy officer Tamsin Stirling said; 'the period before the election of the first members of the Welsh Assembly is vital for housing.'
