DOVER HARBOUR BOARD PRESS RELEASE

It's time to deliver for Dover!

We want to deliver a great future for our customers and community! Through the delivery of Dover Western Docks Revival alongside the creation of a new community fund we can do so much more for Dover.

In order to achieve this, we need to increase our financial and commercial powers and, as such, have submitted a Harbour Revision Order to Government. Full details can be accessed via our website: http://www.doverport.co.uk/?page=News&article=374

We have just launched our "Deliver for Dover" campaign and you may have heard our radio ads on Heart FM, which went live yesterday, encouraging people to get behind our plans and kick start the regeneration of Dover.

You can show your support by visiting www.deliverfordover.co.uk or our website www.doverport.co.uk and registering your support online. You can also visit our Facebook page "Deliver for Dover" at https://www.facebook.com/deliverfordover where you can hear the advertisements or go to our Twitter page, @Port_of_Dover.

We are hoping for a swift granting of the HRO so that the momentum to transform the port and town of Dover will allow us all to experience the great future in which we all wish to share just as soon as possible.

With your help we can change lives and change Dover, so please come on board and get your colleagues, friends and relatives to get behind the campaign and Dover too!

NOTICE FROM LOCAL RESIDENT DAVID ARMITT REGARDING THE STREET LIGHTING SCHEME

A complaint of maladministration regarding KCC's decision to switch some street lights off at midnight GMT has been logged.

I have cited two principle grounds in support of this complaint. Firstly that the survey was not undertaken effectively. Of the five lights switched off adjacent to my home three are now to be restored for safety reasons, following a complaint I made just after the scheme started. Secondly, although KCC claim to have consulted before implementing the scheme it appears that local organisations and individuals best placed to understand local issues, such as traffic safety, anti-social behaviour and the fears and anxieties of local residents were not consulted. So I have also complained therefore that the consultation exercise was inappropriate.

Supporting evidence to back up my complaints can be sent to the Ombudsman. The reference for this investigation is 14 002 268.

Complaints can be sent by post to:

Local Government Ombudsman, PO Box 4771, Coventry CV4 0EH
