Cheltenham Park Pavilion & Sportsground Lighting

Council is investing $2.5 million to upgrade the pavilion at Cheltenham Park in Park Road as well as proposing to install sportsground lighting on the West Oval. These upgrades form part of Council’s master plan for this highly valued community open space.

Sportsground lighting proposal

  • Four 25 metre black powder coated poles with lamp fittings will be installed as per the plan below.
  • The lighting system is independently certified to meet Australian standards.
  • The lighting will provide an appropriately lit oval allowing players to safely train during the twilight and evening.
  • The planned height and location of the poles and positioning of the lamps will ensure light is directed onto the sportsground and not into surrounding properties.
  • Council has consulted a bat expert on the design of the lighting in order to minimise the effect on Cheltenham Park’s resident microbat population.

Works are anticipated to commence in November 2017. The sportsground will be open to the public during construction with restricted access when the light poles are erected and lamps positioned.
