Planning Application to Display Sculptures at Skateboard Park

Colin James

Recommended Posts

A planning application has been submitted for the proposed erection of two plinths on the site of the Skateboard Park on Holmer Road Hereford to display sculptures and similar public art.


The sculptures would be no more than 4 metres in height, similar to the Woodpecker sculpture at Whitecross Road.


The exhibits will not exceed the plinth size of 2 x 2 metres. The sculptures and public art will be created by local artists and students from the Hereford Art College and will be unique to Hereford.


The idea is to change these sculptures every three or four months based on the same principle as the sixth plinth in Trafalgar Square London.


There are no plans to include any lighting. Information about the artists will be displayed in the boom box already on site.


Planning application P172296/F

Great idea.


Always thought that the magnificent woodpecker sculpture was in the wrong place in Whitecross Road and its new place across the road is even worse.

Should of been put on Newmarket roundabout


It was originally outside Bulmers, hence the location, not sure about the new location adjacent to Sainsbury's though.
