Cockburn Central draft Public Art Plan

Consultation has concluded


We asked:

The City of Cockburn sought your comments on a Draft Public Art Plan and Percent for Art Local Planning Policy for Cockburn Central.

The aim is to develop a collection of distinct and diverse public artworks and increase awareness of public art as a significant cultural asset.

Communities throughout Australia have commissioned professionally produced artworks for many public places and some examples are shown overleaf.

The City of Cockburn already has a city-wide policy which requires developers to provide a contribution for artworks for certain major developments. However a policy is now being developed specifically for Cockburn Central.

The draft policy specifies locations and avenues for artwork, allows developers to provide funds to Council to commission the artworks, instead of commissioning art themselves, and extends the locations to some public land. It aims to:

  • Improve the attractiveness of Cockburn Central

  • Develop and promote community identity

  • Promote design partnerships between artists, architects and other

    professionals

  • Provide opportunities for heritage interpretation

  • Produce landmarks that act as focal points and icons for Cockburn Central

  • Provide opportunities for commissioned artworks to generate vibrancy, contribute to cultural identity and engage with the community

Submissions closed on 26 September 2016.
