Maintenance, decommissioning and relocating public art

Public art suffers from daily wear and tear due to being outdoors and exposed to all weathers. It may be vulnerable to vandalism or site redevelopment. Over time artworks, clocks, monuments, fountains and significant signs or furnishings can begin to look tired or lose meaning for a site.

Much care and thought goes into the original commissioning and positioning of such items, but if circumstances change we may need to relocate or remove them. This could be temporary or permanent.

We have developed a policy as part of our Public Art Strategy to help in looking after our public artworks and other designed public realm items to ensure their quality and presentation are kept at a high standard and remain appropriate.
