Three questions could change the very future of Portland Town Council, which is why they want to make sure people on the island have their say.

The council is holding a consultation on their budget and tax precept that is also asking if residents think the council should take on a bigger role.

Mayor Robert Hughes explained to Wessex FM why people should take part.

He said: "They are big issues and important issues especially with Weymouth Council emerging and moving to Dorchester."

"It's a future we have to look at to see if the people of Portland want the town council to take on a bigger role or not."
