To propose that the National Assembly for Wales:
1. Notes the acute shortage of homes available to younger people and families to purchase or rent at prices near the historical trend.
2. Calls on the Welsh Government to base its calculation of housing need on the alternative projection contained in the Future Need and Demand for Housing in Wales.
3. Further calls on the Welsh Government to:
a) publish a strategy to secure more land, including brownfield sites, to be made available for home building;
b) deliver greater investment in vocational skills for the construction sector and in the development of modern apprenticeships; and
c) examine options for family living in higher density urban settings, following best practice in many European cities.
