Glenelg Oval looks set to host night games next season after residents and the club submitted compromise positions in court today.

Glenelg OvalThe Glenelg Football Club and local residents have been at loggerheads about the proposed installation of $500,000 floodlights to allow popular night games to be held at the Brighton Road venue. Residents have challenged the City of Holdfast Bay Council's approval of the development and pursued their opposition through the state's planning court.

Today the Environment, Resources and Development Court received proposed "conditions" from all parties about how the proposal could go ahead and still reduce the perceived impact on nearby residents in terms of noise pollution, litter and increased disturbance from oval patrons.

Conditions suggested by the club, and agreed to by the Council, include:

NO more than five SANFL night matches per calendar year to be played on Friday, Saturday or the night before a public holiday.
NIGHT matches to conclude no later than 9.50pm.
UPON completion of the night matches, lights be turned down to the lowest level necessary for patrons to leave the venue and;
THE light poles be of a light grey colour.

Residents, represented by Mikki Bouchee who is a City of Holdfast Bay councillor and Paul Rayner, submitted more than 30 conditions to be considered by the court. "We are also asking that the existing poles and lights be removed from the grand stand," Ms Bouchee told the court.
