Preparing to create two new councils

Two Joint Committees have been set up, based around the two new council areas.  Every Council in Dorset is represented on the Joint Committees, which will take all the key decisions needed locally to create the new councils.  Joint Committee meetings are held in public, and minutes and agendas are published online at the Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Joint Committee website, and the Dorset Area Joint Committee website.
