A housing association under scrutiny from the Welsh Government has announced plans to merge are a step closer.

Tai Cantref said discussions are under way with its "preferred partner" Wales and West Housing.

Cantref announced plans to seek a partnership in March after the government review into its operation and governance.

It hopes the current discussions "could lead to a successful merger by autumn", it said.

The move comes weeks after Carmarthenshire council confirmed it was interested in taking a stake in running the troubled housing association.

Tai Cantref provides affordable homes and housing services for almost 3,500 people.

It rents homes in Powys, Ceredigion, Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire.
