What is the CLG?

Communities and Local Government (“CLG”) is the brand’ name for the UK Government’s Department for Communities and Local Government. This department was created in May 2006 following a governmental “reshuffle” to succeed the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister (or “ODPM”). Additionally, the new department was given other responsibilities commensurate with its new name.

Just like the ODPM before it, “Communities and Local Government sets policy and rescue”, Primarily in England and Wales, and is also responsible for the legislation so arising.

Communities and Local Government (“CLG”) as a brand’ was established in August 2009. Previously, the branding reflected the Department’s full name, i.e. the Department for Communities and Local Government (“DCLG”)). The ‘rebranding’ attracted some controversy due to the costs involved in dropping the “Department for” element from its brand’. 

The CLG’s “Fire safety law and guidance documents for business” section for businesses may be found here.

More general information on the CLG may be found on their homepage.
