Department of Communities and Local Government Shake-up

The Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG’s) new mission – ‘to promote community, opportunity and prosperity’ has been matched by a new structure, and a broader remit. The remit now includes race relations and community cohesion; equality; and cities roles in climate change; as well as the older remit for deprived communities. For example, Joe Montgomery - previously director of the Tackling Disadvantage group - now heads up the Places and Communities group. Other key policy groups are Policy & Innovation; Corporate Delivery; and Equalities.
