Weymouth and Portland area elections, referendums and local polls

Following the Government Decision for the creation of two unitary authorities in Dorset the statutory order has come into effect today delaying the one third elections for Weymouth and Portland Borough Council until 2019. This means that we therefore need to proceed with the By-Election for the Weymouth West Borough Ward following the resignation of a councillor.
