Thank you to our community memberswho participated in the consultationon the proposed installation of sports field lighting at Rothwell Park from 24 March - 13 April 2017.

At Council's Meeting of 4 July, it was endorsed to proceed with the installation of the sports field lighting.
Currently used as a passive reserve and rugby/cricket field, Rothwell Park has been identified as an ideal venue to install sport field lighting (100 lux) to enable weeknight training on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

What are the details of the proposed lighting poles for Rothwell Park?

  • Installation of five (5) new outdoor floodlighting poles approximately 18.0m – 22.0m in height to the perimeter of the Rothwell Park oval to the north eastern, north western, south eastern and south western corners of the site, with an additional (i.e. fifth) pole located to the eastern boundary;
  • Proposed poles to the eastern boundary of the oval (3) are to be approximately 18.0m in height; and
  • Proposed poles to the western boundary of the oval (2) are to be approximately 22.0m in height.
 
The size of the poles are consistent with existing light poles at other recreation facilities, including Greenlees Park and Edwards Park.
 
We encourage you to consult all the documentation available under 'Resources', particularly the Fact Sheet and Review of Environmental Factors.
