The easiest way to do this now is via the DigitalOcean API.

First, use a GET request to get a list of your databases, and take the ID of the database you’re looking to change the settings for.

Then, use this API call: https://docs.digitalocean.com/reference/api/api-reference/#operation/databases_patch_config

Using your auth token and the body:

{“config”: { “default_time_zone”: “Europe/London” }} <-- Change the timezone as you wish.

This should set the timezone for your server 👍

I got in touch via the support ticket and the team promptly changed the timezone setting to what I needed.

Any update about this? It is a necessary functionality.
