Gareth Bennett (South Wales Central)
To propose that the National Assembly for Wales:
1. Believes that modular housing can be used as an innovative component in addressing Wales’s housing needs.
2. Calls on the Welsh Government to:
a) undertake a review of the planning process to remove red tape and barriers to individuals who wish to build their own modular home;
b) establish a housing development corporation to acquire brownfield sites at existing use value and using compulsory purchase if necessary, where such sites have been undeveloped for three years or more; and
c) develop a register of such sites and give priority on development to small-scale modular housing schemes, to incentivise individuals who wish to build their own home.
