Dorset’s councils are considering reducing the number of local authorities in the county from nine to two, and want to hear your views about the changes being proposed.
With funding continuing to reduce, councils need to re-think the way they are structured in the future. If savings cannot be made, services will suffer even greater cuts beyond 2019 or stop altogether. Councillors will make a decision in early 2017 on how your council services will be delivered in the future. If you live in Bournemouth, Dorset or Poole, it is important that we hear your views.
