THE Launceston City Council has lodged a development application to install four new 30-metre light towers at Invermay Park in an effort to improve the recreational facility for users this year.
The council wants to install three 30-metre high poles on the western side of the park, and two 30-metre high on the eastern side.
Three 12-metre high poles will be retained on the western end of the park, and two 12-metre high poles on the eastern side.
The council has also asked for a 20-metre pole to be relocated to the equestrian ground from the eastern side of the park.
Planners GHD, on behalf of the council, say in their application that the new light poles are not intended to allow for more activity at Invermay Park but to improve its functionality for existing users.
The project is one of three to improve the park with work to improve surface drainage by ground reconstruction and rearrangement of existing parking facilities to come.
The federal government has provided $1.25 million for the lighting and drainage works.
Public representations for the light upgrade close on Tuesday next week.
