COURT: Council takes first step towards clearing up Embankments restaurant

Friday 30th July 2021

THE burnt-out barge on the River Medway, once the Embankments restaurant, has become the subject on an enforcement order by the borough council.

It went up in flames in February last year and its owner has indicated he would like to restore the craft, which is moored on council land.

Proceedings have started to remove the boat from the embankment.

Councillors have said that with a consultation due to start on the future of the Archbishop's Palace, the "eyesore" had to be removed.
