The City of Gosnells will shine a light, several LED light towers to be precise, on local netball for the thousands of players who take to the courts at Langford Netball Complex each year.

Mayor Glenn Dewhurst said the City had secured State Government funding to upgrade floodlighting to eight previously unlit courts at the venue.

“Last financial year, the City completed a $200,000 court resurfacing project at Langford Netball Complex, and this lighting upgrade will be a vital part in the overall improvement of the City’s most used active facility,” he said.

The City of Gosnells will contribute $94,967 to the $223,300 lighting upgrade, which will be carried out in the 2019/20 financial year.

The remaining funds will be provided equally by Southern Districts Netball Association and the State Government, as part of a Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund (CSRFF) grant, which enables three-way funding arrangements between the City, State and local organisations.

Work on the project is expected to be completed by late 2019, and will involve installation of four new break-back poles to allow for easier light replacement, eight LED floodlights and electrical switchboard upgrades.

“Netball is one of the City’s most popular sports and completion of the new courts and lighting will ensure Langford Netball Complex is a first-class facility for current, as well as future players,” Mayor Dewhurst added.
