Government names new director-general for housing



The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government has appointed Jeremy Pocklington (pictured above) as its new director-general for housing.

Jeremy – who is currently director-general for energy and security in the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy – will take up the role in September, where he will replace Helen MacNamara, who has been appointed to the role of director-general of propriety and ethics in the Cabinet Office.

In his new role, Jeremy will oversee the government’s work to help deliver homes across the UK.

Jeremy said: “I am delighted to take up this exciting challenge as the government builds the homes our country needs, ensuring safe and decent homes in a market that’s fit for the future.”
