Ballarat Health, Knowledge and City Living Precinct Draft Master Plan

Following extensive community consultation in June 2018 as part of the draft Health, Knowledge and City Living Precinct Master Plan, City of Ballarat will now be holding a further 3 community sessions in February 2019 as follows:

The Maps and Charts displayed in these community sessions have now been uploaded in the "Documents" section of this page.

The character workshops will be designed to respond to specific issues around heritage, neighbourhood character and residential amenity. Issues raised from the previous consultation are outlined in the Response to Feedback on the Draft Master Plan (November 2018).

Previous consultation

As part of the previous phase of consultation, Council received 110 submissions. Responses received were from property owners (42%), Residents (46%), Workers (32%), Business owners (8%), Visitors (5%) Other (5%). NB: many people have multiple associations with the precinct which is why the % of responses do not equal 100.

The report outlines:

  • What you told us you did and did not like about the Draft Health, Knowledge and City Living precinct Master Plan
  • How we will take on board your suggestions, queries and concerns in the Final Master Plan
  • How the proposed changes will deliver on community and stakeholder aspirations for the Precinct, as captured in the Master Plan vision.

Between November 2018 and February 2019, City of Ballarat will be undertaking additional analysis and actions identified in this report. We will then revise the draft Master plan and have it considered by Council for adoption.
