A SCULPTURE to mark the gateway to a new housing development is being planned.

A total of £500,000 will be spent on a public arts project at Berewood, the 2,550-home development being built to the west of Waterlooville.

The artwork is being funded by developer Grainger and will include events, community projects, architectural enhancements and sculptures.

The first commission is likely to be a gateway sculpture.

The project is being led by Havant Borough Council and Winchester City Council, which both oversee the land where the estate is being built.

They are seeking experts in the field to deliver the project.

Councillor Kirk Phillips, chairman of the West of Waterlooville Arts Advisory Panel, said: ‘They will need to be expert in designing and delivering arts-led place-shaping programmes, with a reputation for innovative works, a strong record of commissioning artists and a genuine commitment to working with the community.’
