The Public Art Policy provides a transparent and planned approach to resourcing, commissioning, managing, and maintaining public art on Council owned or managed land.
It supports the development and commissioning of a diverse range of public art in public spaces that contribute to the social, cultural, environmental and economic value of the area.
We recently reviewed the Policy and have identified minimal changes, primarily references to current policies, plans and legislation.
