About this Consultation

This consultation has now closed.

Possible changes to local government arrangements for Weymouth


  • A community governance review is taking place to decide whether a town council should be set up for the Weymouth area
  •  The council is now holding a full public consultation on the draft proposals


  • A proposal was made in February to replace all nine councils in Dorset with two new councils
  • If the government accepts this proposal, Weymouth and Portland Borough Council would cease to exist in April 2019
  • Weymouth would also be virtually the only place in Dorset not covered by a parish or town council. Portland already has a town council


  • The consultation runs from 30 June to 1 September
  • This is the first consultation and focuses on the proposal to set up a town council
  • Further consultation will take place later in the year.
