About the consultation

Through the development of the Boroondara Community Plan 2017-27 we heard that you value your community, services and facilities because they contribute to good health, a sense of community connection and harmony across life stages. 

One of our strategic objectives in the Community Plan is that community services and facilities are high quality, inclusive and meet a variety of needs now and into the future.

As part of the 2019/20 Capital Works Program, Council is proposing to upgrade the existing sportsground training lights at Macleay Park, oval 1 (DS Bull) to environmentally friendly LED lighting. 

The project will include removing the two existing sportsground light towers and replacing them with four new LED sportsground light towers. This installation will provide the community with energy efficient and environmentally friendly LED lighting that will:

  • 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.
