Rosalie Park floodlighting upgrade

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The City has identified the need to upgrade the floodlighting at Rosalie Park as it is no longer compliant with the Australian Standards. The lighting upgrade will enable the sporting clubs to train and play matches in a safe and more accessible manner.

The sports floodlighting on the main playing areas would be designed and constructed to allow the lighting to meet the Australian Standards. In designing the floodlighting upgrade, the City’s approach will be to minimise the impact of obtrusive light. This includes consideration of design features, such as horizontal positioning and floodlighting types.

    Rosalie Park is set to get a lighting upgrade and a new mixed-use sporting area, after Council gave the projects the green light at the Ordinary Council Meeting on 24 August 2021.

    Existing lighting at the popular playing fields does not currently meet Australian Standards and when the City previously consulted with the Rosalie Park User Group, they identified existing lighting did not meet the needs of the group and their members.

    Community consultation was undertaken on the proposed design in July and August of last year with 100 per cent of respondents in support of the upgrade.

    In December 2020, a City submission to the State Government for a grant to partially fund the project was successful.

    Floodlighting at Rosalie Park is set to receive a much needed upgrade next financial year after the State Government approved a grant application from the City.

    Rosalie Park is the City’s largest active recreation reserve and has 13 floodlight poles with 31 individual lights which do not currently meet Australian Standards for sports training.

    The cost of upgrading the floodlighting is around $1.2 million with the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries now set to contribute $300,000 to the total cost provided the project is completed in the 2021-22 financial year.
