Founded last year, the LEP was set up to boost local businesses, create more highly skilled jobs and put Dorset in a strong position for the future.

It has brought in and allocated 50 million pounds worth of government funding and predicts to bring in another 40 million in the next 6 years.

Topics that were addresses included Q&A's on the sustainability of rural businesses, issues of public transport and availability of broadband.
