NEW LED solar lights have been installed at the Naval Base Shacks.

Twelve lights with in-built motion sensors are scattered throughout the popular holiday park, helping pedestrians navigate the park at night. Naval Base Holiday Association committee president Tony Ravlich said the lights were a welcome addition. “There was no lighting before, so it was dangerous for people walking through the park at night,” he said.

“The solar lights were the best way to go.”

The installation follows other additions to local treasures by the City of Cockburn. In July an automatic fire suppression system was installed on the roof of the Azelia Ley Homestead.

The system, which is fed by rainwater stored on site, automatically starts sprinklers when smoke or heat is detected. It cost $37,000.

The council’s infrastructure services manager Doug Vickery said the City had also connected the Coogee Beach public toilet block and Coogee Beach Café to the sewerage system.

“This ensures we have a more reliable and environmentally sustainable setup for these key community use facilities,” he said.
