Wood Encouragement Policy. [98KB]  - As part of the Home Grown Homes Partnership in Powys, the Wood Encouragement Policy has been developed.  It has been developed to build better, more energy efficient houses, support the local forestry industry and to create jobs.  The Policy sets out that all new council housing projects will look to use wood as the preferred material for both construction and fit-out purposes. This pioneering approach is the first of its kind in the UK.

More homes are needed across Wales and as part of Homes Fit for the Future. Welsh Government have invested £20m in innovative new home building over the next two years.

The Home Grown Homes partnership supported by Wood Knowledge Wales, brings together:

  • Powys County Council's Housing and Regeneration Services,
  • the Welsh Local Government Association,
  • Community Housing Cymru,
  • Natural Resources Wales along with local social housing providers Wales and West Housing Association,
  • Grwp Cynefin,
  • Mid-Wales Housing,
  • Newydd Housing Group,
  • Pobl Group,
  • Pennaf Housing Group and
  • Melin Homes.
