The Department for Communities and Local Government was created in 2006. The following table shows the amount paid in bonuses by the Department since that date. Since 2010-11 the Government has limited bonus awards for senior civil servants to the top 25% of staff – down from the top 65% under Labour. This has saved around £15 million overall.
