Fareham Borough Council has commissioned a new landmark sculpture for the Daedalus site, and we want you to choose the final design!
The sculpture, next to the Peel Common roundabout, will be a landmark for both residents and visitors and will reflect the history and legacy of the Daedalus site.
It will be in place by Summer 2020 and is being paid for by National Grid as part of their contribution for using a small area at Daedalus.
The Executive approved the concept of a Gate Guardian in September 2018. Since this time, a strict Procurement process has been undertaken to identify the best five designs that were submitted to the Council during a competitive tender exercise. These ‘final five’ shortlisted designs were then presented to the public for a month-long vote, which invited people to choose their favoured design.
The public consultation, which attracted 2,280 votes through various consultation methods, identified a clear favourite, receiving almost half of all votes cast.
There was a meeting held on Wednesday 23 October where the procurement details was finalised following the earlier announcement in July of Pete Clutterbuck's design 'Daedalus in Flight' was released as winner.
