About our proposal

We want to improve the lighting along public paths in Boroondara to make them safer for our community and allow more opportunities for people to enjoy being outdoors. This is particularly important in the early mornings, after dark and during winter’s shorter days.

We are proposing to install solar lighting along the pathways in Peel Street Reserve, Kew.

The map below shows the proposed location for the solar lights.

The lighting

We have thought carefully about the lighting we would use along these pathways. We want to make sure the light focuses on the paths and not on the park, so it minimises any impact on wildlife and the surrounding neighbourhood.

Key features of the lighting we would like to use include:

  • low-level, warm lighting generated by solar power
  • controlled timing, which we would set to come on at 5am and off by 10pm
  • motion sensors to trigger an increase in LED light.

Have your say

We want your feedback on our solar lighting proposal. The short survey below will be open until 11:59pm Sunday 12 June 2022.
