Maidstone Borough Council

Public Art Plan 2006- 2011
Reproduced by kind permission of Maidstone BoroughCouncil.

Maidstone’s Public Art Plan demonstrates the Borough Council’s commitment to the development of public art across the Borough and encourages the commissioning of contemporary artists, designers, craftspeople and artworks for the public realm.

The Public Art Plan clearly defines what Maidstone Borough Council believes public art to be. The Council’s Arts Development service will be the delivery mechanism for this Plan by commissioning contemporary artworks from inception to installation at key locations.

Appended to the Plan is a Public Art Policy outlining how the Borough Council will manage public art through the planning process. In line with the Local Development Framework, opportunities for incorporating public art within new development sites will be managed between the Arts Development and Planning Policy teams. Commissioning public art through this process can add value in commercial and business developments, the health service, transport projects, housing schemes and countryside development.
