West Moors Town Council

Welcome to the West Moors Town Council website where you will find information about your Town Council and local community.
We’re here to help with all things West Moors.

In the "Groups and Organisations" section, there are details of West Moors services (including bus details), clubs, churches, schools, sports and much more.

We're delighted to provide this service to local organisations free of charge, so please make sure your organisation is featured with up to date information.

You’ll find information about us and the services we provide as well as links to the other local authorities serving this area and useful information. We hope you find what you came here for but if not, we are only a phone call or email away and waiting to hear from you. 

Who is responsible for what?

West Moors Town Council is responsible for a range of facilities, assets and provisions throughout West Moors.
We have produced a handy infographic to detail which different services Dorset Council and we ourselves are responsible for.
