Dear ComplaintsAndFOI (MBC),

I am perplexed as to why the Privy Council can provide a copy of this Royal Charter that Maidstone Borough Council denies having and confirm that Your council did petition to call itself a Borough ?

Please confirm which Royal charter gave Maidstoen Borough the right to style your district council as a borough and call yourselves Maidstone Borough Council.

Yours sincerely,

Is Maidstone Borough Council saying the Privy Council are liars and that the council holds no record of any councillors petitioning for the council to be styled as a Borough and granting the council the right to call yourselves Maidstone Borough Council ?
