MHCLG to have dual HQ in Wolverhampton

Over the weekend, the Communities Secretary confirmed that in a historic move, a Government department is for the first time opening a dual headquarters in Wolverhampton, which will move hundreds of jobs to the Midlands in a key milestone for the "levelling up" agenda.

  • As part of the government's continued mission to level up opportunity and prosperity across the regions, there need to be more local voices reflected in the creation of government policy. 
  • That is why a new Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government headquarters is being set up in Wolverhampton, with at least 800 roles set to be based in the West Midlands by 2030, including posts at the most senior level. With the regular presence of ministers, it will be a centre for policy development and decision making. 
  • By ending the Whitehall knows best approach, this historic move sends a clear signal of our commitment to support our communities more effectively and back our great smaller cities as we build back better from the pandemic.
