The Arc and Millennium Square

A planning application (20/04474/F) has been made for a visitor attraction called the Arc. It would consist of an observation pod that would rise on twin arms and rotate to give a panoramic view over the city. However, its base and counterweight would form an intimidating and potentially noisy presence in a popular corner of Millennium Square, affecting a primary pedestrian route and water features enjoyed by many families.

While recognising that such a ride could form an exciting feature in the city, BWA has submitted an objection based on the harm it could cause to active travel routes and recreation facilities if sited as proposed.
