North Dorset District Council - Liberal Democrat Councillors

The following North Dorset Liberal Democrat members have been elected to serve as district councillors on North Dorset District Council (NDDC) for the four year period 2015-2019:

  • Blandford Central Ward - Cllr John Tanner
  • Blandford Langton St Leonards Ward - Cllr Barrie Cooper
  • Shaftesbury West Ward - Cllr Derek Beer 


The NDDC area is sub-divided into political areas called "wards". Each ward is then represented by one or more district councillors. District councillors are re-elected every four years.


NDDC has joined with West Dorset District Council and Weymouth and Portland Borough Council to form the Dorset Councils Partnership. Each council has retained its councillors but officer departments have been combined up in Dorchester. As a result of all this, the NDDC offices at Norden, Salisbury Road, Blandford are no longer used. Instead NDDC Councillors on some committees meet in Dorchester and those on other committees meet at Durweston Village Hall.

It seems likely that the Dorset Councils Partnership will join with East Dorset District Council and Purbeck District Council to form a new unitary rural council by 2019.
