Localism policy

The Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) is taking action to give local communities new rights. These rights will give community, voluntary and charity groups the opportunity to take the initiative when it comes to how local public services are run and planning decisions are made.

We are offering support to groups who want to use these new rights – providing information, funding and simple guidance called ‘You’ve got the Power’ to help them navigate and exercise the rights.
