Borough of Poole was the unitary authority responsible for local government in the Poole, Dorset, England. It was created on 1 April 1997 following a review by the Local Government Commission for England (1992), becoming administratively independent from Dorset County Council, and ceased to exist on April 1, 2019.[1] Its council comprises 16 wards and 42 councillors and is controlled by a Conservative administration.

In February 2018 the 'Future Dorset' plan was approved by the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government Sajid Javid, which means that Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole borough councils was merged into one singular unitary authority in April 2019.[2]


For local elections, 42 councillors are elected across 16 wards[3] and elections take place every four years. The last election took place in May 2015, resulting in a Conservative majority.[4] The Mayor is Sean Gabriel, a Conservative councillor for the Canford Heath west ward since May 2015.[5] The Council is made up of 32 Conservative, 6 Liberal Democrat 3 Poole People and 1 UKIP councillors. Following these elections, a Conservative administration was formed [6] with a cabinet of seven councillors who are responsible for deciding how the Council's strategies and policies are implemented and how the budget is spent. The Council Leader is Janet Walton (Conservative).[7] The Mayor is Sean Gabriel, a Conservative councillor for Canford Heath since 2015.[8] The Sheriff, a position created by the town's charter of 1568 and just one of 15 Sheriffs in the country, is Conservative councillor Elaine Atkinson.
