Less than 48 hrs later, 48 trees had been reduced to woodchips, for no reason at all. Only two trees survived. The Light Rail should have been built on the Randwick racecourse side of Alison Road, as originally agreed. Wendy Williamson said:. January 14, at AM. Peter F said:. January 14, at PM. Wendy there is a memorial service at am this Saturday, 16 January, in memory of the magnificent trees that have been destroyed.
The purpose of the service is to send a loud message to the NSW Government that this must not happen again. To assist with planning the event, please RSVP using this link. Please wear black.

They come because it is different and it is real. The sad situation today is that the current lease ends in Despite protracted negotiations there seems little prospect of the current landlord granting an extension of the lease.
There is no reason to believe that any alternative management would be as sympathetic to the unique requirements of a yard for traditional vessels. In our view the listed weather-boarded buildings and the quayside are ideally suited for their current use. Any alternative use would require substantial refurbishment and alteration of the buildings and would irreparably change the entire ethos of this unique area.
This is not a site that can support significant commercial gain directly. It generates economic benefits for the surrounding area and the town, as the Creek always has throughout its history. Trying to make profits from it directly will simply not work without resulting in its destruction. This site sets out what has been achieved and what could be achieved. A comment box below contains an email I have sent to Councillors today 3rd December It may explain our issues with the current council planning document.
If after viewing these pages you wish to comment in support of our aims, please do add comments to this blog or sign up for our newsletters to keep up to date with the campaign. We can use them to show support. Or write to us at info standardquay. If you could send us a copy of your email that would be much appreciated. You should be organising a petition via Facebook or letter-dropping, or getting a celebrity on to this, a segment on the TV or papers, or it will be the end of Standard Quay as we know it.
My husband and I live in Australia and visit the UK about every 2 years, and Faversham is always the highlight of our visit. We have been out on various barges and relived a by-gone era kept alive by dedicated enthusiasts. It must not be allowed to be sacrificed on the alter of profit — that era is fading as we realise that heritage is beyond price.
I will be the first person to sign a petition, or write letters to the decision makers. I will start right now. I think Standard Quay is brilliant even as it is at the moment, the traditional vessels and buildings perfectly complementing each other. Your future aspirations would make it, and Faversham, extra special, for visitors, residents and boating people. Standard Quay is a rare example of original buildings being used in a unique and traditional way of which Faversham should be very proud.
We all must do whatever we can to protect this special place. I am writing to you as members of the Committee considering the Tony Fullwood report. I write on behalf of Standard Quay Faversham Ltd the company which rents and pays a professionally agreed full commercial rent for the buildings and moorings at Standard Quay, Faversham. You will be aware that our lease expires next summer and that it will not be renewed by our landlord. We have always paid and are prepared to continue to pay a commercial, not peppercorn or in any way reduced , rent for the premises we have used for traditional boat building, repair and maintenance for the past 17 years.
We now have a potentially expanding apprenticeship scheme on the Quay. Unfortunately, the fact that our lease will not be extended and the limitations on our operations imposed recently have already damaged the development of the activities at the Quay. We use the buildings in their entirety for our business and we would like the opportunity to demonstrate to you the reasons why the plans which are now up for approval in the Tony Fullwood report will fatally damage the potential to provide employment, training and regeneration at Standard Quay.
The fact that we can continue to operate from the buildings and the very narrow strip of land that we were confined to by a recent court case, is testament to the commercial success and potential the Quay has under its current guise. It does not need the additions proposed to be commercially successful and indeed these will damage its future irreparably.
We have made subsequent requests to negotiate on a sale but have been ignored. We made a similar offer for the building and yard previously occupied by Faversham Fencing and this offer also was turned down. What is planned in the Tony Fullwood document will increase the appeal of the site to speculative development and remove it permanently from use as a working boat yard.
The mere mention of residential use, even in the most discouraging of terms, in any part of the Quay will damn it for ever. In an ideal world we would appreciate the assistance of the Council in progressing a purchase of the site for ownership by a public interest company which would continue to run it in line with its current success in providing: the employment now there but under threat ; new employment; an expansion of the training we already do; dredging of the area of Creek we use and regeneration for further areas of Faversham Creek.
It is difficult to explain the scale of operations involved in large traditional vessel building and repair and why these are incompatible with shops and restaurants without being on site. We therefore would like to invite you to visit the Quay on Friday 10th December at 2pm so that we can properly explain the issues. What is it about councils that they only seem interested in the fast buck rather than in long — term values and opportunities?
People with more knowledge than me have spoken at length about the real, traditional, maritime industries taking place here and for many societies and cultures, this alone, would be reason enough to perpetuate the site. However, as has been said, this is also a vistor attraction, not just for tourists but for artists, photographers and boat enthusiasts alike. The visitors, at least, understand the importance of maintaining industries based upon our rich maritime heritage and history.
In the long -term, were the council able to envisage it, there HAS to be commercial opportunity here. In the U. As such, Standard Quay could, alongside so much else of interest , be part of the Faversham Tourist Trail, but consider a way of charging for it like everybody else in the world does for cultural heritage display. Please continue your fight to save this highly important, historic and living tribute to our past and hope for the future.
The apprentices trained in the skills shipwrighting and barge building obtain the sort of skills that be utilised in many industries, just the sort of people to help us out of recession. Good luck. T would like to leave a brief note as a Swale resident and someone with a hobby and professional interest in the maritime past.
Standard Quay is a very valuable asset to the area for what goes on there now rather than as an expanded retail and residential site. In the last few years the area has lost several sites of this type such as the established boat yard at Conyer, and the Sailing Barge Museum site in Sittingbourne. Surely it is stupid to surgically alter this area of Faversham now at a moment of healthy expansion with new shipwrights apprenticeships schemes underway etc It is an iconic site for the whole region and any development should be modest and inkeeping with what is already established which draws in visitors by land and water from all overe the world.
The creek is enhanced by Thames Sailing barges, and these boat building traditions, they must be saved at all costs. Standard Quay must be saved! I know very well this sort of things, living in Italy. We had thousands of crimes against the intelligence, the nature and our lives in the past years and still today. And this is what we are talking about. A crime against the history, nature and human beings.
The damages we made are actually impossible to erase and will affect the next generations, maybe for ever. When I talk about Faversham I talk about the Historic Quay, and about Cambria, and about the Iron Wharf and the fantastic people who leave there, carrying on traditions and love for the art of boatbuilding. That is beauty, and, in my humble opinion, intelligence. I have serious doubts about a future without the Quay, for Faversham.
I would never come back again for instance, and so many of my friends from all over the world. But not so many with such an heritage. I came to Faversham in May , to meet Bob and Lena, who helped me so much during my rowing trip from London to Istanbul on a little boat.
I will continue, from Faversham, in April And I will do all that I can to spread the problem to the international press, before and during the departure. I would like to come back and see and talk and report about Faversham as an intelligent example of sustainable economy, for the advantage of the many, and for a long time.
Not, hopefully, as a stupid and selfish action for the profit of a few business men. When are people going to realise that places like Standard Quay are worth far more than money. I know about the quay and its specialist craftspeople through my association with Eye of the Wind, a beautiful brigantine, which was built and registered at Faversham.
The local town council and residents should be fighting tooth and nail to keep this historic place and its skilled workers for the future and develop it for what it was originally built for, not for more expensive housing for the few who can afford it. Why would visitors come to visit a block of flats? The town will suffer in the end. It will be too late once they close it in June. You wont be able to get it back. I just want to echo all the comments made by so many other people. Whatever happened to vision, and the ability to think more than a couple of years ahead?
Good luck to all involved in the campaign. If Standard Quay is to be turned into a Tea Room come souvenier shop complex, where would visitors park their cars? There is very little space for parking on the quay and I feel sure the residents of Abbey Street would have something to say about anything that would stimulate more traffic and competition for parking in Abbey Street. Anybody who knows the area should realise that to build accomadation on the site would be at the cost of part of Favershams heritage.
The Borough Council have very little understanding of Cultural Heritage or the interest of Faveshams residents. A good example of this around the creek is the loss of the public right to walk along the creek front between standard Quay and the bridge. This is despite the fact that when the Planning discussions for the development were in progress, Cllr Michael Henderson raised the matter at an area commitee meeting that took place at Graveney village hall in Sandbanks Road Graveney.
He requested that the planning department ensure that a public right of way be maintained along the frontage of the devlopment in order that Faversham residents might walk the creek frontage. After the buildings were erected it was acknowledged by the Borough Council Planning Department that a mistake had been made. Personally I am still waiting for this to be put right.
As an example, this should demonstrate that if we as Faversham Residents and anyone interested in Maritime history would like to preserve this part of our heritage, we should give our full support to those who are attemping to preserve Standard Quay for the purpose that it has been used for many yeas. I am writing from the perspective of a tourist and I am deeply disappointed to learn that Faversham may be about to lose Standard Quay. I visit family in Faversham once or twice a year and sometimes I bring Canadian visitors with me.
I love to bring people to stay in Faversham and to show them around the town because its rich traditions and history flow seamlessly into the present rather than being wrapped up in neat little packages for the tourists to admire. I am proud to show them that Faversham has a working boat yard, just as I am proud to show them that we still have a working brewery and a wonderful parish church, which welcomes visitors, but still feels like a place of worship for the community rather than a tourist attraction.
In fact there are many wonderful spots and streets in Faversham where I am proud to take visitors, precisely because there is not a souvenir shop on every corner. Faversham already has a nice choice of good restaurants as well as gift shops and antique shops that appeal to tourists. Tourists will not be attracted by more of those sort of things as they can be found in many, many towns.
They will come to see something that is more unique, such as Standard Quay. Faversham should be doing whatever it can to hold onto these jobs.
I invite you to donate in memory of Steve, so your gift can go towards beating cancer and helping those still affected by it today. Thank you. So very sad to hear of Steve's death. He was doing so well for so long, despite the cancer. I hope that this small contribution will help towards finding a cancer cure. Setup a new tribute page.

I am totally confused by different methods. A cousin had y-dna testing done hoping to lead to the identity of an unknown great-grandfather. I am furiously trying to learn as much about dna testing as possible, as quickly as possible. Is this possible? Where should I direct these questions so that they get to you, the author? Hi Dr. I have a quick question about my DNA sample from ancestry. How is it that in some cases the children have a higher percentage of DNA attributed to a certain place than the parents?
Thank you very much. One of them was telling us that you are doing a study re Endogenous families. Some of us were discussing it and wondering does that mean intermarrying in a community or where your can trace your ancestors and your husbands ancestors back in the centuries to where they met up and married.
I have traced my husband and mine back to a marriage in with one family in Meopham, Kent and another marriage in Speldhurst, Kent. Looking forward to hearing from you. Many thanks for all that you have and are doing for we amateur genealogists.

Hello, I am enjoying your blog. We have had genetic tests done on my brother and they are interesting, but we have no idea how to interpret the results! How can I find someone who can interpret the results for us? When you have an open community public tree where everyone and anyone can add data, means that people with not good intentions can also add data, — subtract data, or move it around into different family lines.
How many family relationships demonstrated by the paper trail even under GPS standards will end up incorrect? When even original records have conflicting details, will all genealogists agree on which is the most accurate? We have countless online outlets to submit genealogical data. Books and journals continue to be published as well. Are all of them ever going to reflect the exact same data? Who is the ultimate authority anyway?
Accuracy is a worthwhile goal, but genealogy is a mess because humans beings are a mess. Great read! Sequence beginning and end? I am totally confused by different methods. A cousin had y-dna testing done hoping to lead to the identity of an unknown great-grandfather.
