 What is this project and why are we doing it?

In February 2016, a group of local young people from Hoon Hay spoke to the Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board about lighting the basketball court  in Hoon Hay Park that they use regularly. They also indicated a willingness to help with any fundraising towards the project.

Council staff have continued to work with these young people, leading to discussions  about further equipment being added in this area of Hoon Hay Park. These ideas include a park shelter and barbeque, painting the court and platform seating.

These items are currently unfunded so while we are seeking feedback about the lighting, we are also asking the community for their preferred option so we can prioritise how funding is spent.

We hope that the installation of these items will encourage more family use of the park space.

We are asking for your feedback on the following:

Basketball court lighting

The proposed lighting is intended to be operated on a timing system, so that users can turn the lighting on and it will automatically turn off after a set period.  It is proposed that this lighting will be available for use seven nights per week until 9pm in the evening.

Possible additional projects to be funded

  • Double burner electric barbeque
  • Solid wooden 3x3 shelter
  • Painting the court - Initial feedback has suggested that suitable colours would be red and blue.
  • Platform style seating suitable for watching basketball.

What happens next?

Once the consultation period has closed, the project team will analyse the feedback and produce a staff report for the Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board, who will then make a recommendation to the Council Head of Parks for final decision.

If this project is approved construction of the lighting is likely to commence in April 2018.  Installation of the additional items will occur when funding becomes available.
