Tai Ceredigion, the planned new housing association for Ceredigion, has opened a series of show homes around the County. The homes are designed to demonstrate the quality of renovation that current council tenants can expect if council housing stock is transferred to the new organisation following the planned vote in November.
Government economic policies mean that housing associations can raise far greater amounts of money for upkeep and renovation than councils are able to. This is believed to be the only way that the current council housing stock will be able to meet the ambitious Welsh Housing Quality Standard which all Registered Social Landlords are expected to meet by 2012. The council housing stock in Ceredigion currently needs an investment of around £40 million to meet this standard.
Tai Ceredigion will be a not-for-profit Industrial & Provident Society with charitable objectives.
