The total floor area (including areas sub-let to other occupiers) of properties currently used by the Department for Communities and Local Government is 63,346 square metres.

The area occupied by the Department's staff is 20,485 square metres. This equates to 11.96 square metres for each full-time equivalent post.

The Department is currently planning a number of disposals and consolidations across its estate and as well as reducing costs these will improve the square metres per full-time equivalent ratio. We are also seeking to sub-let out more of our office space, which will further improve the ratio.
