Local Government Reorganisation

A New Council for Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole

The Government has agreed to create a new unitary council to provide all local government services in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole, plus a second unitary council for the rest of Dorset. 

This will come into being in April 2019, and Dorset’s existing nine councils, including Bournemouth Council, would cease to exist.
