Contact the Housing Management Team

Our phone lines get busy during peak periods, sometimes our 'on-hold' times can be around 6 minutes so it's always worth trying to find the answer on our website before calling your local office. 

If you do call, please listen carefully to the options available so we can make sure you get put through to the right members of the team.

If you have a housing enquiry that is not a repair or maintenance issue, you can email the Housing team at Housing@Dover.gov.uk.

For media enquiries only please email us at pr@dover.gov.uk
