E Petition – You can still sign!

March 3, 2011


As of 4.30pm on 3rd March 2011, the e-petition will no longer be hosted on the Swale Borough Council system but will be here on the Standard Quay website.

The speed with which the numbers of signatures rose during its mere four weeks on the SBC website has not gone unnoticed – it has made a real impact. However, under the rules of these government run e-petitions, there would be no further value to be gained leaving it open there. For more explanation of this, please follow the link in an earlier posting to the e-petitions scheme at Swale.

However, we believe there are more people who want to show their support and we would like to continue the petition to so that our Councillors have a proper look at how Faversham Creek can realistically be used for the benefit of the Town using the practical skills already here and without unwanted ‘enabling development’.

Thank you for all your support so far. If you have not received our latest newsletter, please click on the link opposite.

    The newsletter mentioned the need to keep on top of Faversham Local Engagement Forum etc. There’s now a feed for automatic updates on that (+ other swale democratic services things):

    I support the lobby to keep Standard Quay as a working area for barges.

    Standard Quay, provides traditional craft skills that must be preserved by commercial success. Not confined to museums.

    I have just read the article, “The quay to the future”, in March’s issue of Coast Magazine! I just had to visit you’re website and sign the e petition, it’s a plight worth fighting for! Keep up the fantastic work, I really do hope they listen. Best of luck!

    I feel it would be a terrible loss of local culture to allow this development to go forward. Please do not sacrifice an irreplacable part of British tradition by selling out to corporate interests.
