I reported on potential plans for a virtual pavement in North Street which has been requested for sometime; purchase of a community SID for the use by the whole Beaminster Division out of my County Council division budget; the changes in adult services agreed last week and which has been on the news over the weekend.
What I didn’t have time to report on was the work of the Dorset Children’s Safeguarding Board which I attend and the Health and Wellbeing Board which I Chair, the next agenda for this will be out shortly. The Children’s Overview Committee challenges the work of the children’s services directorate and at that meeting some two weeks ago I gave a report on the Dorset Children’s Trust and on the Dorset Youth Offending Team which is seen as one of the best in the country. The Team will now being working across Dorset, Bournemouth and Poole which is a great step forward and the staff are fantastic.
Next week sees the decision by Dorset Fire Authority about a potential merger with Wiltshire & Swindon.
There is much more as always, so please ask if you have anything you want to know about locally or from the County Council services.
