Housing (Wales) Measure 2011

Section 14 - Reducing variation: power to apply

43.Section 14 makes provision for an authority to apply for a reducing variation of a direction where there is no longer a need to suspend the right to buy. The authority must be satisfied that the demand for social housing in the part of the authority (or in respect of the type of houses) where the varied application will apply no longer substantially exceeds the supply or is not likely to do so, or even if that is the case, that the exercise of the right to buy will not increase the imbalance.
