Description

Chesterfield Borough Council is seeking to appoint an experienced team consisting of an artist, landscape architect and contractor to design and deliver a landmark public art project at a key gateway location within Chesterfield.

This scheme will be one of two schemes implemented under the wider ‘Chesterfield Gateway Enhancement Project’, which is being funded by the European Regional Development Fund and Chesterfield Borough Council’s Percent for Art Scheme.

The overall aim of the project is to utilise quality public realm improvements alongside art as the catalyst to raising the profile and quality of Chesterfield as a place to invest, visit and live. The consultant will be expected to ensure that the project can contribute to the ideas and principles outlined by the Destination Chesterfield project to ensure that Chesterfield can be seen through “fresh eyes” as a quality destination.

During the past year there have been a number of sites considered to deliver the aims of this project and two locations have been chosen. They will be Hornsbridge Island and the Railway Station Link. The latter project will be subject to a separate procurement process.

The budget for Hornsbridge Island is set at £300,000
