Evandale’s Morven Park will have 28 solar panels installed on the club room’s roof. 

A development application for the the installation entered into the community consultation with the Northern Midlands Council on Saturday.

Mode Electrical is slated to complete the work, according to the application. 

Public comment is open on the application until Friday, June 29.

All submissions must be addressed to council general manager Des Jennings and mailed to PO Box 156, Longford 7301 or emailed in a PDF to planning@nmc.tas.gov.au. 

Morven Park is in a heritage precinct area and is owned by the Northern Midlands Council.

The Evandale Football Club and the Evandale Cricket Club are ground’s main tenants. 

Morven Park will soon benefit from installation of an electronic scoreboard, thanks to a $30,000 state government grant.
