We're planning to install lights at Surrey Park

In March 2023, we asked for feedback on a proposal to install lighting at Surrey Park.

This proposal responded to community requests for lighting to make it safer to exercise and walk pets at night, particularly during the winter months when it gets dark earlier.

What we heard is the community overwhelmingly supports the installation of lighting at the park, and agreed they should operate from late-May to September and be on from 6pm to 9.30pm daily.

Due to this response, we’ve developed a lighting plan we want to share with the community now.

The lighting proposed is energy-efficient, low spill LEDs that will match the lighting level provided by streetlights.

The lighting level is sufficient for passive recreation and dog walking. It is not suitable for active sports.

The low spill LEDs are designed to direct the light to the immediate area only and not encroach on surrounding properties.

Feedback will close Monday 26 February.
