 The Prime Minister, Theresa May, has announced the creation of the Department for Housing, Communities and Local Government.

The change adds the word ‘housing’ to DCLG’s title and Sajid Javid will continue as Secretary of State.

Responding to the news, Hastoe Chief Executive, Sue Chalkley, said:

“I welcome the fact that ‘Housing’ is now a Cabinet level responsibility and will be a priority for a Government department. I hope this isn’t just a cosmetic change, but signals a real change of emphasis in Government policy. Housing must front and centre of this Government’s domestic agenda to build the homes this country badly needs.”
