    What will the lights be used for?

    The installation of the lights in the laneway and the reserve will ensure that the lighting levels are increased to a standard to allow adequate visibility of the path surface (i.e. to avoid tripping on hazards etc).  

    How has Council previously responded to this issue?

    Council officers have met with residents on-site on two occasions regarding these concerns. A member of Victoria Police attended one of these meetings and also conducted a separate site visit to assess lighting and community safety at the walkway between Keilor Park Drive and Darling Close. Following these meetings, further site maintenance was completed by Council to improve the safety, lighting and visibility at Hassett Crescent Reserve and the walkway between Keilor Park Drive and Darling Close.
