Liz Truss will remain secretary of state for the environment, while Greg Clark will take over at the helm of the communities department, Downing Street has confirmed this afternoon.
Truss has held the role since last year when she replaced the climate sceptic Owen Paterson in a reshuffle. She had previously been education minister. Before she entered parliament, she was deputy director at the think-tank Reform, and had also worked at Shell.
She courted controversy with renewable energy campaigners last year when she said that solar farms threatened food security.
Greg Clark, the MP for Tunbridge Wells, is the new secretary of state for communities and local government, having previously been at Dclg as planning minister between 2010 and 2012, during which time he led on the development of the national planning policy framework. Prior to the election he was minister for universities, science and cities.
Clark replaces Brentwood and Ongar MP Eric Pickles who was unpopular with the renewables industry for refusing planning permission for several onshore wind farms after taking the decisions out of the hands of the Planning Inspectorate.
Pickles tweeted that there would be news later in the week on his new role, though the business department already has him listed as minister for faith.
Savid Javid has been announced as the new business secretary, while Patrick McLoughlin will remain as transport secretary. They will sit on the cabinet along with Amber Rudd, who was announced as secretary of state for energy and climate change this morning.
IEMA's policy and engagement lead Josh Fothergill said: "Our members will hope to see these five leaders accomplish a joined-up and long-term approach to issues that will continue to impact on the economy, the environment, businesses and UK citizens. This fresh start signifies a real opportunity to make that happen."
