Welcome to Government Office for the North West

 

As part of the Government's commitment to localism, decentralisation and the rolling back of regional government, Ministers announced in May 2010 the abolition of the Government Office for London and a review of the case for the abolition of the remaining Government Offices.

On 22 July 2010, the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, Eric Pickles, announced to Parliament that the Government has the intention in principle to abolish the remaining eight Government Offices. The process will be subject to using the Spending Review to resolve consequential issues. The final decisions will be made at the end of the Spending Review in the autumn.

As part of our transition planning, the GONW website has merged with a GO Network-wide site.
