Proposed changes to the DCLG's statistics

01 April 2012

ANEC responded to the proposals to change the Department for Communities and Local Government's (DCLG) statistics.

In it's response ANEC welcomed proposals to continue the provision of data and statistics, such as housing numbers, deprivation and local government financing, at council levels whilst suggesting that this would also be useful at local enterprise partnership area level.

However concerns were raised regarding the proposal to stop providing the information at the former Government Office level. ANEC highlighted the fact that this helps to inform cross boundary working and issues that are common across the North East of England and that EU funding bids are currently based on regional geographies.
