Housing Delivery Survey Brings Home Message of Growth for the Future


An annual housing delivery survey published by Dover District Council this week shows that 494 new homes were built in the district during 2020/21 – the highest level of new dwellings completed in the district in the last five years. Other data analysed shows that the Council can also demonstrate 5.56 years’ worth of housing supply, and is well on course to meet the Government’s housing targets for the district. 

Lois Jarrett, DDC Head of Planning, Regeneration and Development, said: “These are encouraging results, as they show increasing developer interest and activity in the district which will benefit other jobs and services. Having a more than 5 year housing supply means that planning decisions can continue to be made locally in accordance with our existing and emerging Local Development Plans.”
