Final recommendations published for Dorset Council

The Commission has published its final recommendations for new electoral arrangements for Dorset Council. We are proposing that Dorset Council should be represented by 82 councillors in future. Our recommendations mean that those councillors should represent 6 three-councillor wards, 18 two-councillor wards and 28 one-councillor wards across the council. The Commission has now completed its review. We are extremely grateful to the people of Dorset who took the time and effort to send us their views. The Commission considered every piece of evidence it received before finalising these recommendations. In the map below, you can explore our final recommendations (in red) and the changes we have made as a result of our consultation on our draft recommendations (in black). You can also read the final recommendations report and find links to other useful information in the box at the bottom of this page.
