Project update

Thank you for your feedback on the new and improved multi-sport hard courts at Carlson Reserve.

We’re now seeking your feedback on the lighting infrastructure upgrade as part of this project.

What we propose

We’re proposing to include four upgraded LED sports lighting towers with lighting levels of 250 lux, positioned at the corners of the court.

There will be a timer on the court lights in the evenings, as there has been with the current tennis courts. Time for the lights will be limited to 11pm on weekdays and 9pm on weekends. The courts will remain a free public facility, with no bookings required.

The lighting will be designed in accordance with the Australian Standard AS4282-2019 to minimise lighting spill into neighbouring properties.

Round 2 Consultation (2022) - lighting

Round 1 Consultation (2021) - courts

Council is planning to upgrade the public tennis courts at Carlson Reserve, Clayton to create new and improved free public multi-sport hard courts for community use.

The redevelopment of the courts is part of a three-staged project which will revitalise and expand the public open space at Carlson Reserve, to enhance family and social recreation opportunities.

We have put together a draft concept plan of the multi-purpose hard courts and the proposed line-marking and would like to hear your thoughts on what we have proposed. Please refer to the Draft Concept Plan and FAQs section for more information.

Thank you in advance to those who provide feedback – it will help ensure that we deliver a project that is valued by the local community.

Have your say by Friday 17 December 2021.

The proposed sports/line markings are:

  • Tennis
  • Half-court basketball
  • Futsal soccer court
  • Half-court netball.
