The core functions of the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) are to lead action within Government for decentralisation and localism, and also to play and an important role in delivering economic growth and the big society.

The framework for delivering these responsibilities consists of the DCLG business plan and the structural reform plan.

The DCLG business plan was republished on 13 May and sets out our vision and priorities, as well as data on budgets, common areas of spend and indicators. From July, progress on these will be published by all Departments including DCLG in the quarterly data summaries.

Detailed actions to deliver our priorities are set out with clear actions and measurable milestones in the structural reform plan. This was recently refreshed in the DCLG business plan. Progress against the structural reform plan actions is published on the No 10 website each month.
