Proposal to Light Nakara Oval
The Football Federation NT with funding support from the Northern Territory
Government has submitted a proposal to Darwin City Council for the installation of lights
at Nakara Oval.
Council as the land owner has considered the proposal and provided its conditional
support subject to the outcome of consultation with the local residents and the
assessment of technical drawings.
Lord Mayor Graeme Sawyer said that Council supports the enhancement of sporting
facilities throughout Darwin and is considering the proposal from the Football Federation.
“Having the capacity to participate in sporting activities at night time is conducive to
Darwin’s climate and the increasing levels of participation in sport means that we need to
have better facilities,” he said. “So this proposal from the Football Federation certainly
speaks to a need in our community so we are looking forward to seeing the results of
community consultation on this project.”
