Council Boundaries

The government have made a policy to cut all Central Government grant aid to local authorities by 2020; the idea being to make local authorities more financially self-sufficient  They only see this working if the many and various local authorities that exist at present amalgamate into larger ones, this has already happened to Wiltshire and The Isle of Wight.

There are three proposals being discussed for the local authorities (1) Amalgamation of Christchurch, Bournemouth, Poole and East Dorset, (2) Amalgamation of all 9 authorities presently in Dorset – this includes Bournemouth, Poole and the County Council or (3) a Combined Authority, which will be a form of syndicate of the present 9.
