Dover District Council is committed to improving the appearance of the district and creating places, which are 'clean, green and safe' and where people want to live and work.

In order to achieve these objectives, the Council undertakes enforcement action to ensure that

  • the quality of life and the health, safety and welfare of residents and visitors alike are maintained
  • the district is an attractive and welcoming place for all
  • residents and visitors are not harassed or subjected to anti-social behaviour
  • planning regulations are adhered to

Corporate Enforcement Strategy

Our  Enforcement Strategy has been created as an overarching document for  all types of enforcement activity undertaken by the Council and set out priorities to  guide officers when deciding what action to take in carrying out their regulatory duties  on behalf of Dover District Council.
