Housing (Wales) Measure 2011

Sections 23 and 24 Revocation of direction

55.An authority may apply in writing to the Welsh Ministers to revoke a direction provided the condition in section 23(2) exists. This is that the demand for social housing covered by the direction does not substantially exceed its supply or is not likely to, or even if that is the case that the exercise of the right to buy is not likely to increase that imbalance. An application must explain why the authority has concluded that this condition exists.
