A CONTROVERSIAL water feature in St George’s Square has got the thumbs up.
A new study into the black granite water cascade in the revamped square has found no complaints.
The detailed report, due to be presented to a scrutiny committee next week, admits that fountain design was uncharted territory for council officials.
And that meant the final design was reached by mutual agreement rather than a deliberate policy.
But the criticisms of one councillor, who labelled the water feature “ a dreadful dribbling black wall” have not been substantiated.
The report claims: “It appears that the project team and project board were content with its proposed form and during the six months of design, discussions revolved around design details.
“During public consultation, a public cabinet report and two planning applications neither members of the public nor any councillor formally raised any concerns about the cascade feature.”
