Moreland sporting facilities receive funding for public safety infrastructure

Moreland sporting facilities receive funding for public safety infrastructure
March 12, 2020

Funding has been secured for solar smart lighting in Moreland's sporting facilities to improve community safety, security and access. Moreland Council is providing almost $48,000 towards upgrading public lighting, with an additional State Government contribution of more than $187,000 through the Community Crime Prevention Program.

Moreland Council will install new smart solar lighting with supporting poles at Sewell Reserve, Morris Reserve and Charles Mutton Reserve.

In line with Council's Zero Carbon Moreland strategy, the solar smart lighting emits no greenhouse gases once installed.

Lighting the pathways will complete the link to and from the sports facilities, to create a safer passage at night for the community.

Moreland Mayor Cr Lambros Tapinos said upgrading infrastructure to create safer, more accessible and inclusive environments was an important step to ensure open spaces, streets and facilities can be enjoyed at night.

Mayor Tapinos commented “we look forward to seeing the Moreland community enjoying using these great sports facilities after dark into the future.”

In 2019, Council successfully completed similar upgrades to lighting in six open spaces across Moreland, also funded under the Community Crime Prevention Program.

The upgrades in Sewell Reserve are expected to be completed by September 2020.
