The Secretary of State for Local Communities and Local Government, The Rt Hon Sajid Javid MP, has advised that he is minded to support the Future Dorset proposal.
In a joint statement, the leaders of the six councils who put forward the proposal said:
“Replacing Dorset’s nine councils with two new ones – structured around the established urban and rural geography of the county – will bring a strong and prosperous future Dorset, with two councils better able to work together in the best interests of Dorset’s residents and the long-term success of the county.
“These two councils will have greater influence nationally, better able to secure vital funding for things such as roads and housing. This will make the area more attractive to businesses, help them to grow and thrive, meaning enhanced job prospects and better lives for local people.”
Bradpole councillors will analyse the information which will flow from this significant announcement and in particular how it will affect our Civil Parish.
