Department for Communities and Local Government

Partner description:

The Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) works to move decision-making power from central government to local councils. This helps put communities in charge of planning, increases accountability and helps citizens to see how their money is being spent.

DCLG is responsible for:
•supporting local government by giving them the power to act for their community – without interference from central government
•helping communities and neighbourhoods to solve their own problems so neighbourhoods are strong, attractive and thriving
•working with local enterprise partnerships and enterprise zones to help the private sector grow
•making the planning system work more efficiently and effectively
•supporting local fire and rescue authorities so that they’re able to respond to emergencies and reduce the number and impact of fires
