As part of their strategic objectives, the Boroondara City Council are proposing to upgrade the lighting at Macleay Park Oval 1.
As the council works towards improving community services and facilities from the Community Plan, the introduction of brand new LED lighting will ensure that these are inclusive and will be able to meet people’s needs now and in the future.
Included in the 2019/20 Capital Works Program, Boroondara Council is aiming to upgrade training lights already at the sportsground of Macleay Park, and replace them with environmentally friendly LED lighting.
The project will involve the removal of the two current light towers and switch to four LED ones. When the installation is done, the LED lighting will bring benefits by becoming an energy efficient and environmentally friendly alternative.
Council has outlined the four positives that will come from LED lights:
- support training opportunities for sporting participants
- enhance passive recreation opportunities for casual park users
- increase visibility of surrounding pathways
- direct light spill to the playing surface.
With the project still in its development stage, members of the Boroondara community get the chance to have their say on what goes on with the new lighting opportunity.
Council have encouraged people to provide feedback anytime until Sunday 22 December 2019, through an online survey.
Once the survey is completed, the participant will be able to register to receive details with an update about the consultation outcome.
If completed, Macleay Park will prove to be even more of a valuable asset to the community with a place for people to train and play.
