Public Art for Bow Brickhill

Have your say on the Public Art Project

The Parish Council is looking at the provision of two pieces of wooden sculpture to be sited on the village green and at the Pavilion. Funding for the sculptures arises from the Section 106 agreement Milton Keynes Council drew up with the developers of Brickhill Sands. Under this agreement, the developers pay the Council sums of money to be used under various strictly controlled headings. One of these is public art. As part of the process, we are undertaking a public consultation process to involve the community in the project. A local sculptor has been found and has produced some draft designs for consideration and these are shown below. Wherever possible the structures will involve the use of locally sourced natural materials. The Pavilion sculpture will provide a place for visitors to sit and will be constructed of oak and the village green structure a semi covered gateway to the Greensand Ridge. It is hoped that residents will want to suggest how they would like to make the structures relevant to the Bow Brickhill community. This could possibly be done by carvings inside the structures depicting historic events. If you would like to contribute to the discussion on this project please send your suggestions and ideas to the Parish Council email address below by 31st May 2019.
