Netball court lighting concept

Mosman Drill Hall Common – Netball Court Lighting Concept – Preliminary Community Consultation

Mosman Council is inviting public comment on a proposal for the installation of floodlighting at the three existing netball courts at Mosman Drill Hall Common.

At present the courts are limited to day-time use under the Harbour Trust’s Management Plan for the Mosman Drill Hall precinct, development approval conditions, and the terms of the lease for the site. Mosman Netball Club has advised that this limitation means that each team in the club has only 9 minutes in which to train on a full court per week. If floodlighting was installed this would extend the time available to the Club’s teams to use the courts. The proposal would help support increased women’s participation in sport.

Mosman Council is seeking community input into a concept to install floodlighting for all three outdoor netball courts at the site. Three floodlighting options are provided, all of which have little to no light spill to adjoining properties.

Mosman Netball Club has indicated that the intended hours of use would be:

  • February to September: Mondays to Thursdays until 8.30pm
  • October to February: 2-3 evenings per week until 8.30pm

Comments can be provided to Mosman Council by making a submission through our consultation website. Responses close on Friday 22 December.
