Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


Install a permanent rainbow path of 62m along the footpath in Goodland Gardens (please see attached artist impression of location)


The rainbow's path starts at the entrance of Goodland Gardens from Bridge St next, to the bridge, it then carries for 62 metres parallel to the river tone and curves off into the hard surface area of Goodland Gardens.


The path will be installed by approved contractors WJ, who have experience of implementing rainbow crossings around the country. They are also the UK's leading highway road marking specialists.


It is expected, due to the specification of the paint and the volume of footfall that, this footpath will mean that maintenance will not be required for a minimum of 15 years creating a permanent feature in the park. 


The rainbow path will also include the "Progress" colours which will add a chevron along the hoist that features black, brown, light blue, pink, and white stripes to bring those communities (marginalized people) to the forefront; "the arrow points to the right to show forward movement, while being along the left edge shows that progress is being made.
