Dartford has transformed over the last ten years, as part of the Thames Gateway growth area. As a local authority we have been at the forefront of this transformation, working in partnership to drive new investment, secure new homes and advance the regeneration of our town centre. We have changed as a Council too, modernising our services to reflect the changing communities we serve and meet their aspirations as the place to live, work and visit.
We have delivered a great deal but there is so much more that we want to do for our place and our communities. We have re-imagined our Council’s executive management team, creating two, externally facing Director roles that, together with the Council’s Director of Corporate Services, will provide the capacity, expertise and leadership to secure our ambitions for Dartford.
