A SCULPTURE or other piece of public art is set to adorn the Weymouth Gateway site.

Artists are now being asked for their input.

The piece will be located at the Mercery Road development, which includes a new Sainsbury’s, Whitbread restaurant and hotel, and New Look Support Centre.

New Look is funding the whole project as part of its planning agreement with Weymouth and Portland Borough Council guiding the scheme.

The search is now on for an artist or group of artists with a suitable background to create the scheme of public art.

They would work with the community to create the piece.
