The council’s new capital budget sets aside £500 000 for improvements to the city centre. Given the huge costs involved in reconstructing pavements and so forth that isn’t going to go that far, but it could still make a difference.


One thing I think may be worth considering is public art. The sculpture below was commissioned by Inverclyde Council in western Scotland and cost about £100 000.


The views of the local business community and residents will be sort before anything substantial is done, but it is important that as much of the available money as possible is used on actually paying for works rather than just on planning them.
