Thank you to our community members who participated in the consultation on the proposed upgrade of sports field lighting at Five Dock Park from 24 March - 13 April 2017.
At Council's Meeting of 4 July, it was endorsed to proceed with this upgrade.
It is proposed to limit weeknight training to Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays 5pm – 9.15pm. Approval will be sought to enable the lights to be on also on Mondays and Fridays.
For Council’s commitment to environmental sustainability, it has been recognised through an array of awards.
In regards to sporting fields lighting, Council is currently trialling low maintenance and energy efficient LED sports ground lighting at St Luke’s Oval No.1.
Consideration will be given to the energy and maintenance costs over the life of the installation (not just the initial capital outlay) and budget accordingly.
The installation of the proposed lights at any or all of the three parks will be subject to broad community support received during the consultation period of 24 March – 13 April 2017.
If this proposal is supported by the community, it is anticipated that the works at Five Dock Park will be completed by December 2017.
The proposed upgrade is subject to Council approving this item as part of the City of Canada Bay’s 2017/2018 Capital Expenditure Budget.
The proposed works are funded through S94 developer contributions.
Council is committed to providing quality facilities that encourage our community to participate in an active, social and healthy lifestyle.
Thank you for taking the time to participate in our current consultations.
