Purbeck Council Will Go It Alone


8:34am 15th November 2013

Purbeck District Council will remain a lone authority after choosing not to join forces with their East Dorset counterparts.

Plans to share services with Christchurch Borough and East Dorset were being considered but have now been abandoned.

The leader of Purbeck District Council, Councillor Gary Suttle, said the partnership should "not proceed at this time."

23 councillors voted in favour of Councillor Suttle's recommendation not to proceed with the partnership and abstained.

The Government want more local authorities to team-up to save money and in their words "improve efficiency".
