Dover District Allocated £1m to Support Local Investment - Open Call for Projects Launched


Dover District Council has been allocated £1m over three years from the Government’s UK Shared Prosperity Fund – and an open call for project ideas for local investment in the area has now been launched.

The aim of the fund is to support the Government’s Levelling Up commitment over a three year period through three investment priorities: communities and place; supporting local business; and people and skills (in year 3 only).

The Government says it wants places to identify and build on their own strengths and needs at a local level, focused on pride in place and increasing life chances.

Cllr Trevor Bartlett, Leader of Dover District Council said: “We welcome this funding and are very pleased to have this opportunity to work creatively at a local level with our communities and partners, to bring forward ways to support people in the area and boost our local economy.”

Dover District Council will:

  • Assess and consider submitted project ideas
  • Work with local stakeholders
  • Consult with MPs
  • Submit an investment plan by 1 August 2022.

Our ‘open call for projects’ will close at 12 noon on 30 June 2022. For more information, and to submit your project ideas, please see the DDC website at
