Dorset Flood & Coastal Partnership

To seek approval to evolve from the existing Dorset Coastal Engineering Partnership Agreement (between BCP Council and Dorset Council) to a Shared Service Agreement. This would include working to a single budget for the resourcing and management of the service, including a longer term shift to BCP acting as host employer. It is also proposed for the Shared Service to expand to include surface water management and therefore operate as the Dorset Flood and Coastal Partnership.
