S.106 Fishermans Beach Art Project
Hythe Town Council recently invited proposals for a major public work of art to be installed in the Princess Diana Sensory Garden, Oaklands Park, Stade Street, Hythe, Kent.
Brief: The funding for a public work of art was provided to HTC by the developer at Fishermans Beach, in Hythe.
A public consultation was held and Teach Me Courses were chosen to complete the project.
This was discussed and it was proposed that the Artwork be moved across the park to the Bandstand, leaving the Sensory Garden as a place to sit peacefully and reflect.
Planning permission will be required from Folkestone and Hythe District Council before any works may start.
Updates to this project will be made once received.
If you have any questions or would like to offer a statement on how you feel about this project please feel free to email Clerk@Hythe-tc.gov.uk.
Her Majesty's Platinum Jubilee
Due to the sad passing of her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, there will be no further events planned. However, his Majesty King Charles III has asked that we continue to plant trees this autumn in her honour, under the guise of her Jubilee.
Hythe, the Head Cinque Port, is set on the beautiful Kent coast where the quiet charm of many of the Cinque Port towns belies their important and sometimes violent role in the development of the nation’s seafaring and naval traditions.
Some survive as working ports. Indeed, Dover is a major international transport hub, others, like Hastings, maintain their historic role as centres of inshore fishing. New Romney, Winchelsea and Tenterden, in particular, have been stranded well inland by the retreating sea.
It is sometimes hard to believe that all were once amongst the most significant ports in England but by the 21st century, most of the Cinque Port towns have diversified well beyond their seafaring origins, but all repay the visitor with fascinating glimpses of their colourful past and its continuing influence upon the local, regional and national identity.
