Have say on light­ing at sports courts

Southern Gazette (Victoria Park) - - Near You -

THE Town of Vic­to­ria Park will com­mence a con­sul­ta­tion process to de­ter­mine if flood­light­ing is needed at the multi-pur­pose sports courts on McCal­lum Park.

In April, users of the courts started to lobby the Town of Vic­to­ria Park for light­ing.

Carl Coady, of Vic­to­ria Park, said it got dark by 5.30pm in win­ter, which meant there was not much time to play af­ter work or school.

“Even if we could play un­til 7pm in the win­ter, that would give us all a cou­ple of hours to let off some steam.

“You’ve got to have that out­let. I have a pretty se­ri­ous job and it’s good to go down there and en­joy some so­cial bas­ket­ball,” he said.

At its June coun­cil meet­ing, the Town agreed to put aside $150,000 for the lights if the com­mu­nity in­di­cated dur­ing the con­sul­ta­tion process that it wanted light­ing.
