Building More Family Homes

For years David has been campaigning for a significant increase in house-building in Wales. There is a particular need for more family homes that are affordable to people in their 30's and 40's.

To help alleviate the current housing crisis, David is calling for more innovative forms of house building which will result in homes with a modern design and at an affordable price.

David is also leading a Welsh Conservative campaign to combat homelessness through initiatives such as the Housing First scheme.
