Reorganisation of Councils- I’m certain you know that the councils of Poole, Bournemouth and Christchurch will soon merge to form a polyglot. I personally don’t have strong views and welcome opportunities to share expertise, rather than duplicate services…as long as it works. My concern is that we have been very active in holding Poole council to account for many years, but worry how our voice will be heard with expansion of the council. Who, for example in Purewell, Christchurch will be even remotely interested in the ‘goings-on’ in Whitecliff or Baiter? Thinking of this, not all Poole councillors have been interested either! Nevertheless, it is more important than ever we stand as a strong association so we can be and will be heard when occasions demand that this should be so.
