Sculpture for Green Point ruled out

25 March 2015

Council has accepted a recommendation by the Bayside Arts & Culture Advisory Committee not to proceed with installation of a new bronze sculpture at Green Point in Brighton.

The committee agreed that a sculpture marking the centenary of ANZAC would have no connection or integrity with the history of the site and the design of the existing cenotaph.

The cenotaph was erected following World War 1 and was originally intended to provide a place for the community to grieve.

Council has recently completed improvements at the site to honour the Anzac traditions of service and sacrifice.

Three new flag poles and lighting have been installed and these will form part of a commemorative centenary dawn service to be held at Green Point on ANZAC Day.

Council has also received a grant to install signage to acknowledge the Sandringham Avenue of Honour highlighting the sacrifices made by World War 1 soldiers.
