Financial Impact: Positive impact to revenue budget. Using developer contributions to install new, LED floodlighting will reduce running and maintenance costs to BFC. The floodlighting will be easier to operate and more environmentally sustainable/energy efficient. It will increase capacity of using the sports facilities by up to 40%, meaning they can be used to a greater extent.
