Department for Communities and Local Government

Link to database




A UK Government Department, the job of the Department for Communities and Local Government is to help create sustainable communities, working with other government departments, local councils, businesses, the voluntary sector, and communities themselves. Sustainable communities are about things that matter to people: decent homes at prices people can afford, good public transport, schools, hospitals, and shops; people able to have a say on the way their neighbourhood is run; and a clean, safe environment. The web site is a very useful resource for locating official documents, information leaflets, news releases, statistics and much more. The publications database contains details of ODPM publications that have been issued since May 2002. The web site provides access to some full text documents published by the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister, which include research and statistics, consultation papers, strategies and regulations.
