How does the Welsh Government plan to conduct repair work and/or review properties with RAAC if residents are unwilling to relocate to temporary accommodation?

Answered by Cabinet Secretary for Housing, Local Government and Planning | Answered on 10/04/2024

The social housing identified with RAAC in Hirwaun are owned and managed by the Registered Social Landlord Trivallis. Responsibility for Tenant engagement, support and any required repair work associated with the presence of RAAC rests with them as responsible owner. Officials are in regular contact with senior officers at Trivallis and we are aware that the landlord has acted swiftly to inform and support tenants, offer alternative accommodation and undertake urgent further surveys of the affected properties. Our thoughts are of course with the affected households at this difficult time.
