Why we consult

Dorset Council consults with the local residents, businesses and visitors for many reasons (service improvements, new developments, customer satisfaction, to prioritise spending, and so on) as part of their commitment to delivering local services with value for money. Above this, though, are the obligations we have from legislation and national government agendas.

Statutory duties

There are a number of statutory duties which the council needs to fulfil. These range from duties to consult on the budget with businesses; to carrying out Statements of Community Involvement in planning; and consulting with stakeholders, parents and young people under The Childcare Act (2006).
