Legistrative Council E-Petitions

E-petition Number
414
Title
Halt light pole placements around Lake Wendouree
Grievance
The Petition of certain citizens of the State of Victoria draws to the attention of the Legislative Council that the City of Ballarat made the decision to place 225 light poles around the Steve Moneghetti Track in Lake Wendouree, with each light pole being 5.5 metres tall.

This is a poor outcome as it fails to consider more sensitive and respectful options such as in-ground cross-path illumination which is better for the environment, reduces light pollution, is less aesthetically offensive and costs less in long-term maintenance but still achieves improved path safety.
Action
The petitioners therefore request that the Legislative Council call on the Government to halt the project of placing 225 light poles around the Steve Moneghetti Track in Lake Wendouree and enable the community to consider better options for implementation by the City of Ballarat.
