Dover District Neighbourhood Forums – Dover North

Kent County Council in partnership with Dover District Council and the town and parish councils has set up five Dover District Neighbourhood Forums that are working together to give you a greater influence over your local services and the quality of life in your community.  Local councillors and officers from the county, district and parish/town councils are involved in the meetings to hear your concerns. 

Come along to our neighbourhood forums and tell us about the issues affecting life where you live.

Funding in the Dover District 2014/15

‘You Decide’ Grant Scheme

The ‘You Decide’ Grant Scheme for 2014/15 is now open!!


‘You Decide enables community groups to apply for funding from the Dover District Neighbourhood Forums – a grant scheme jointly funded by Dover District Council and Kent County Council. 

This year DDC has allocated funding to each of the Dover District areas, (Dover West, Sandwich, Dover North, Dover Town, Deal and Walmer). Additional funding has been allocated from the KCC Member Community Grants (MCG) for the Dover North area. For all other areas, grants will be available via the KCC Combined Member Grant Scheme.

You Decide involves communities recommending which local projects are worthy of funding. Please note as this is public money, all grants must be approved by the KCC and DDC Cabinets.

Apply now for ‘You Decide’ 2014/15

Deadline for completed applications is Friday 10 October 2014


There are two versions of the application form and guidance notes available. Please ensure you complete the correct form, otherwise your project may not be considered and you will need to resubmit your application. The form you complete depends on where your project is taking place. Please see table below to identify which area you need to apply to.
