DDTG Chamber Meeting

What does the DDTCG do?

The DDTCG meet 6 weekly 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.

DDTCG 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 Competitions for tenants and Leaseholders, this year they are judging the Poster competition.

Some of the things we will be doing in 2022:

  • Scrutinising the satisfaction of the tenants on how their repairs are done and see if there could be any improvements.
  • Working on a newsletter.
  • Agreeing environmental works to improve neighbourhoods.
  • Finding out how Dover’s policies work and making sure Tenants' voices help shape them.
  • Discuss neighbourhood issues and recommending improvements to the service.
