Bass Coast Shire Council has awarded a contract to RJC Electrical Solutions Pty Ltd to carry out the Design and Construction of Oval lightings at Inverloch, Dalyston and Cowes Recreation Reserves. Location maps are shown below. This project represents yet another significant investment in sport and recreation facilities across the Shire.

This project will result in:

  • Design, Supply & Installation of four lighting poles and lighting fixtures, including associated ancillary infrastructure to cater for 200 Lux LED lighting of the reserves.
  • Removal of existing lighting poles and lighting fixtures.

These three field lighting projects were identified as a priority within Council’s Active Bass Coast Plan. Active Bass Coast Plans sets a 10-year Plan for the provision of open space and recreation services and facilities across the municipality. This project has been developed through an assessment of the existing lighting and planning towards the provision of fully compliant lighting to AFL amateur level semi-professional competition level with 200 Lux LED lightings.

The total project cost is in the order of $1.2 Million which is mainly funded by Sports Recreation Victoria Community Sports Infrastructure Stimulus Program ($1.08 Million), and partly by Council ($40,000), and the Football Clubs from all three reserves ($75,000) ($25k from each club).
