Department for Communities & Local Government

 

The Department for Communities and Local Government sets policy on supporting local government; communities and neighbourhoods; regeneration; housing; planning, building and the environment; and fire.

The Department is ending the era of top-down government by giving new powers to councils, communities, neighbours and individuals.

Karl Cunion from the Department for Communities and Local Government says ‘success of Living With Environmental Change for the Department for Communities and Local Government would be to influence the direction and scope of research, and develop mechanisms within the department to enable better use at policy level of evidence that emerges from the research funded by other organisations and departments.'
