Thank you for your information request. 

 

Please note: Dorset Council was created from 1^st April 2019 covering the
areas/services of the following former councils – Dorset County Council,
East Dorset District Council, Dorset Councils Partnership (made up of
North Dorset District Council, West Dorset District Council and Weymouth &
Portland Borough Council) and Purbeck District Council. Depending on the
information you have requested, it may be necessary to provide information
based on some or all of the former councils. 

 

If you have submitted a request for non-personal recorded information, it
will be dealt with under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) or the

environmental information is not within the scope of the FOIA.

FOIA/EIR.  If the request will take any longer to process (e.g., if we
need to consult third parties or seek clarification from you) we will let
you know.
