DCLG change name to MHCLG
In the recent cabinet re-shuffle both the department heads that affect energy efficiency in buildings namely Sajid Javid and Greg Clark both remain in place.
In an interesting move the Department for Communities Local Government (DCLG) has been renamed as the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG). It should be recognised that housing was always included in the brief of DCLG, but just not recognised in its name.
Sajid Javid states on the .Gov website:
“Building the homes our country needs is an absolute priority for this government and so I’m delighted the Prime Minister has asked me to serve in this role. The name change for the department reflects this government’s renewed focus to deliver more homes and build strong communities across England.”
Sajid Javid will see his job title changed to secretary of state for housing, communities and local government.
Elmhurst Energy will continue working with both BEIS and MHCLG to ensure that energy efficiency is recognised in homes and businesses throughout the UK.
