Revised Policy P316 and Public Art Toolkit Out for Comment

Public Notice 14 February 2017

The City has revised Policy P316 Developer Contribution for Public Art & Public Art Spaces and the Public Art Toolkit. Policy P316 has been in operation since July 2014 and requires developers of projects with a value of $4 million or greater to contribute towards public art within the City. If approved, the revised policy will:

  • Encourage contributions to the City’s Public Art Fund by offering a discount on the required contribution amount
  • Ensure that large developments diversify their artwork budget allocation, by requiring part of the contribution to be paid into the Public Art Fund
  • Require public art proposals to be assessed against the Qualitative Assessment Criteria set out in the City’s Public Art Toolkit – A Guide for Developers.

The feedback period for the revised Policy P316 and the Toolkit will close at 5pm,
Friday 10 March 2017.
