Reject the proposal to remove The Tasting Garden, an artwork by American artist Mark Dion from the grounds of The Storey Creative Industries Centre

The artwork was commissioned through artranspennine98 and the garden was built by volunteers. In 2009 the bronzes were stolen while the building was undergoing refurbishment. The artwork was not covered by the Council's insurance policy. The council now proposes to remove the rest of the garden.
