Our Places for Growth programme will relocate Civil Servants out of London, with at least 1,000 roles moved by 2022 and thousands more by 2030. The programme is engaged on an ongoing basis with stakeholders across all four nations of the UK, including in South West England. Location decisions will be made by departments in conjunction with the Cabinet Office, and will form an integral part of planning for the Spending Review.
