Statement from DDC Leader in response to Insulate Britain protests


“Today’s demonstration in Dover is totally unacceptable and has led to disruption for local residents, businesses and port users.

“This has nothing to do with fuel poverty. They targeted the Port of Dover to cause maximum disruption to people going about their daily lives in a cynical attempt to highlight their campaign.

“All they do each time they protest is to turn people away from their cause.

“While they chose to disrupt, DDC continues to work proactively to reduce carbon emissions and help residents and businesses in practical ways to improve energy efficiency.”

Cllr Trevor Bartlett, Leader of Dover District Council
