This is an exciting time for Dorset, with plans underway for local government reorganisation which will see the replacement of Dorset’s nine councils with two new ones. These councils will have greater influence nationally and be better able to work in the best interests of Dorset’s residents and to build a strong and prosperous future Dorset.
