Seat plaques are generally 80x250mm and have 15 – 25 words.
Plaques may be added to existing seats, but you need permission from the Council.
The design depends on the location because it will need to match existing furniture in the area.
In remote areas a bench seat may be needed, and in some areas it may be possible to choose a picnic table.
The cost for a standard seat and plaque in a park or reserve is $2,800.
If it’s in a more remote location, costs range between $2,000 - $4,000.
The cost includes the seat, plaque, installation and future maintenance of the seat.
Sculptures and other commemorative artwork are managed under the Council's Public Art Policy. Page 7 of the policy gives guidelines for getting, commissioning or accepting gifts of public art.
