Agenda item

Culture Mile

The Town Clerk to be heard.


The Committee heard an update from the Culture Mile Manager on Culture Mile activities. The Culture Mile Manager outlined the key details of Culture Mile’s proposals for the 2021-3 period, in line with the Culture Mile and City of London Corporation Cultural Strategy, and highlighted the connection to the City of London Corporation managed open spaces. 


A Member disputed on the designation of an installation as a bench which was located in the Beech Street garden and noted her belief that an insufficient degree of consultation had been undertaken on its implementation. The Culture Mile Manager responded by confirming that, as with all projects, lessons would be learnt from any mistakes made and factored into future work. In addition, it was confirmed that the signs highlighted by the Member were temporary.


The Deputy Chairman thanked Officers for their work developing the Culture Mile Learning plan and requested that consideration be given to incorporating open spaces into this learning plan in future.


RESOLVED- That the update be noted.
