Swale Borough Council meets at the Black Building, Standard Quay

Sad, isn’t it, that they could even consider turning this into a restaurant. I hope they make the right decision, but the hostility shown to the chap with the camera may not be a good sign…

By the way, banning filming of meetings like this seems to be in contravention of Government guidance on the issue - which I guess the people involved in this case did not know.

One Response to Swale Borough Council meets at the Black Building, Standard Quay

  1. The Quay says:

    I’m afraid Swale Borough Council is fully aware of this issue and the current Government guidance but chooses to ignore it. I wrote in 2011 requesting to film a public meeting about Standard Quay for our documentary The Quay, enclosing a copy of Bob Neill’s letter but the chairman refused permission, banned filming anyway and threatened to cancel the meeting unless cameras were switched off.
