Legislation to dissolve the nine Dorset councils and create two councils was passed in both Houses of Parliament on 23rd May 2018

The new Unitary Councils will operate from April 2019:

Only Christchurch Borough Council has opposed the change.

The High Court has ordered that a decision on whether Christchurch Council’s Judicial Review challenging the Local Government Reorganisation will be made by 8th June.

Councillor Paul Hilliard will update us on the current position at our members meeting in June.


Council Restructuring


Following the EGM on the 16th March, we are pleased to announce that SAMRA managed to recruit some new committee members to fill the vacant positions.

Mike Duckworth was voted on as Chairman and Josie Spencer took on the role of Secretary.

Kathy Kidd was also co opted onto the main committee.

We thank them all for volunteering to save the organisation

AGM Meeting

Community Governance

A Community Governance Review is a way for councils to put in place or make changes to the Parish Council arrangements in the area.

A draft recommendation is now out for public consultation closing on the 20th July 2018.

Detail and a response questionnaire can be found here :


The recommendation goes against the proposed community councils suggested by SAMRA, and places Mudeford,Stanpit and Friars Cliff in a single Parished Council.

This would basically result in both residents associations within the community becoming superfluous.

Also the questionnaire offers no option for No Change for those residents that are against the proposals.
