WPBC To Meet Tonight To Decide On Council Merger

W and P Borough Council

2:09pm 6th November 2014
(Updated 2:10pm 6th November 2014)

A final meeting is taking place to decide if three Dorset councils will join together to create a tri-council partnership.

West Dorset and North Dorset District Councils have already approved the merger, so the final decision rests on Weymouth and Portland Borough.

The full council will be meeting at 7pm tonight (6th November).

It's estimated the partnership could save £6 million by 2020 with a single work-force serving all three.

Office accomodation and ICT systems would be streamlined and shared to increase efficiency.
