Through the 'Provision of Public Art in Development Proposals Policy', the City of Melville aims to further enhance public spaces, and encourage organisations to celebrate Melville's history and culture and contribute to building a sense of community pride.
Application forms and assessment
Development Applications that are approved with a condition for public art are required to provide artwork to the value of 1% of the development, or alternately pay cash in lieu of providing the artwork.
Artwork concepts need to be submitted to the Public Art Panel, using the form below. The Panel convenes every 6-8 weeks to assess the artwork concepts. Applications must comply with the Policy (LPP1.4) and with the guidelines outlined in the application form.
