Final recommendations published for Dorset County Council

The Commission has published its final recommendations for new electoral arrangements for Dorset County Council. We are proposing that Dorset should be represented by 46 county councillors in future: one more than the current arrangements. Our recommendations mean that those county councillors should represent 34 single-member electoral divisions and 6 two-member electoral divisions across the county. 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 see how they have changed from the current arrangements (in blue) and the changes we have made as a result of our consultation on 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.
