I wrote on 17 October to the leaders of the shadow Dorset Council and the shadow Bournemouth Christchurch and Poole Council setting out the approach to council tax harmonisation we are minded to adopt.

It will be for each of the councils to calculate any average council tax across its area needed for the purposes of any approach to council tax harmonisation that we adopt, in accordance with the secondary legislation that makes provision for that approach.
