Holding answer received on 27 February 2017

I met the senior representatives of the 9 Dorset councils, including the then deputy leader of Christchurch Borough Council, on 30 November 2016, when the 9 councils discussed with me the proposal which they were intending to submit and which in the event, 6 of the councils have now submitted. I intend now to consider carefully that proposal before announcing how I am minded to proceed, after which there will be an opportunity for the councils and others interested to make representations.
