Pickles relocates DCLG to share Home Office site

Eric Pickles has moved the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) to join Theresa May at the Home Office.

In a move expected to save £220m, DCLG ministers and staff have this week relocated from Eland House to share the Home Office’s headquarters in Marsham Street, Westminster.

Local government secretary Eric Pickles ordered the rearrangement as part of efforts to cut down on spending.

Despite the location change, DCLG has confirmed it will continue its practice of flying Britain’s local and national flags.

Eland House will now be redeveloped into shops and offices as part of ongoing regeneration of London’s Victoria area.

Pickles said: ‘There is still immense inefficiency across the public sector. By sharing services and streamlining our own back office, we are practising what we preach to town halls by illustrating the scope to save even more taxpayers’ money.

‘And in waving goodbye to the old building which will be turned into new shops and offices, we are also doing our bit to support the exciting regeneration of London’s Victoria.’
