Guildford Borough Council has obtained a S106 payment (£4,500) from the new houses on the old Nelco Works in Station Road for a piece of public art in the village.
It has been suggested that this should be something with a naturalistic theme, that it should enhance the area, and be where as many people as possible will see it – maybe near the pond, another part of the Common, the railway bridge or the Orchard between the bridge and Snooty’s Grocery Store. Suggestions so far include a Swift Tower, an interactive information board but there is no definite plan yet.
Guildford BC will lead on commissioning an artist and developing a brief to produce the work. We want to involve residents in the decision making and development of the project so if you have ideas and would like to be involved or would like more information.
