Legal Streetart Wall Petition

The following petition has been submitted:


Title: Legal Streetart Wall


Statement: We the undersigned petition the Council to help us organise/find a designated area/wall/walls to become a legal spot in Spalding for street artists/artists to be able to paint there.


Justification:  Many from around the area have commented on social media, after seeing some local work and talent, that it would be a nice attraction for the town to have a legal streetart wall – somewhere people can go to paint.  Peterborough has one and it has been a huge attraction for the city, with people coming from all over the country to visit the artwork.  Having something like this in Spalding will attract many big named street artists to come and paint here, and also be an attraction for the town , bringing more business/customers to the rest of the town whilst they visit.  Schools can also use an area/wall to do art projects, and the local community could put on workshops, to teach the younger generation about the streetart culture, to respect the artwork and to teach them how to do it.



The Council’s petition scheme states that where more than 850 signatories to the petition have been received, that it will be debated by the Full Council.  This petition has received in excess of this number, via electronic and paper versions of the petition.


Karl Barfoot (petition organiser) and Adam Sadd will attend to present their petition to the Council. 


The procedure for the debate is as follows:


·         The petition organiser will be given 5 minutes to present the petition at the meeting;


·         The petition will be discussed by councillors for a maximum of 30 minutes (to be extended at the Chairman’s discretion);


·         The Council will decide how to respond to the petition, and the following options are available:


      i.        To decide to take the action the petition requests;

    ii.        To decide not to take the action requested, and for the reasons to be put forward in the debate;

   iii.        To commission further investigation into the matter, e.g. by a relevant committee

   iv.        Where the issue is one on which the Council executive are required to make the final decision, the Council will decide whether to make recommendations to inform that decision.  The petition organiser will receive written confirmation of this decision.  The confirmation will also be published on the Council’s website.
