Dover District Tenant Group

Who are the DDTG?

The DDTG are a local group of Dover District Council tenants and leaseholders.

They are a non-political Group that represent the views and interests of tenants and leaseholders across the Dover District. 

A Message from the Chair

"The Dover District Tenants Group are still running despite the Coronavirus pandemic, we have been having video meetings and intend to have them every six weeks, until such times that face-to-face meetings are permitted. We do need new members, you do not have to know about housing just that you want to learn how housing works, have a say on how things change and be a DDC  tenant or leaseholder.

Some of the things we will be doing in 2021:

  • Scrutinising the satisfaction of the tenants on how their repairs are done and see if there could be any improvements.
  • Working on a newsletter for the summer, (topics needed.)
  • Looking at the quarterly performance figures
  • Agreeing environmental works to improve neighbourhoods
  • Finding out how Dover’s policies work and making sure Tenants' voices help shape them.
  • Running the Garden competition, by judging and organising sponsorship and prizes.
  • Discuss neighbourhood issues and recommending improvements to the service

If you think you would like to give it a try or know more just contact Beth Becks by email tenantinvolvement@dover.gov.uk, she is our dedicated Tenant Participation Officer and will be pleased to hear from you and answer your questions."

June Bailey, Chair of Dover District Tenants' Group

What does the DDTG do?

The DDTG meet on a quarterly basis to discuss local issues with Dover District Council.  The group have worked on many community projects over the years to help improve the estates for residents who live there.

DDTG members receive regular training to make sure that they have the skills to work effectively with housing staff on behalf of the tenants and leaseholders they represent. 

The group play a big role in the annual Dover Garden Competition, in which they are successful in securing sponsorship.
