The Dover District Tenants' Consultative Group (DDTCG) 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. They are independent, however work closely with DDC as a consultative body to resolve issues and recommend improvements to the service.

What does the DDTCG do?

 DDTG Meeting 2The DDTCG meet every 6 weeks 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 Garden Competition.

Some of the things we will be doing in 2024:

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