Business Northwest and St George’s Anglican Church are currently working on a Memorandum of Understanding over the use of the LED lights wrapped around the giant Norfolk Pine in Burnie.
While the council paid the $70,000 for the lights, the tree is on the land of the Anglican Church, giving them a say on when the lights are used.
Business Northwest president Ian Jones said under the agreement there would be a number of dates and days where the lights will be able to be in use.
“There are specific days we’ve suggested we’d like to illuminate the tree (like Anzac Day),” Mr Jones said.
“There’s no drama… it’s just (the church’s) property, so they want to know when there’s going to be people there.
“It’s only courteous to advise them,” Mr Jones said.
He said this was always going to be the agreement, and that this was just the process of putting that into writing.
“These light will last a long time,” Mr Jones said.
“This is a long-term investment.
“If there are other significant days that come up… like if the Dockers got into the grand final… I’m sure we could arrange that.”
