West Dorset District Council office relocation
West Dorset District Council has downsized to smaller, greener and cheaper to run offices as part of phase one of the Charles Street development. Find out more about the new offices here.
As part of its search for savings the district council has moved to more efficient offices to protect key services and keep council tax down. The new offices mean:
Savings from day one and no increase to the district council's share of your council tax
A fully accessible building in a central location for users of public services
A greener council
Investment in Dorchester's town centre and support for the local economy
A more efficient district council with officers located in one purpose built building
Moving from our old offices has helped:
Free up many town centre car parking spaces previously occupied by council staff
Start a project to develop Dorchester's Shire Hall as an important visitor attraction
Help the county council to provide a new library and adult learning centre
