The City of Ballarat is currently developing an Active Ballarat Strategy that will position the city and surrounding suburbs to meet the diverse sport and recreation needs of the community.

The overall objectives of this project are to:

  • Establish strategic directions for the planning, provision, development and management of a diverse range of sport and recreation facilities, services and infrastructure
  • Provide recommendations and strategic outcomes that address short term (1-2 years), medium term (3-4 years) and future term (5-10 years) community needs
  • Identify critical policy direction for City of Ballarat recreation processes and procedures.

The City of Ballarat is committed to active and effective community engagement and participation in key strategic planning processes. We encourage the community to ask questions and provide comments regarding the project, to ensure Ballarat continues to grow and prosper.

A more detailed overview of the consultation process can be found in the Active Ballarat Community Consultation Background Paper in the document library, and this page will be regularly updated with information about opportunities to have your say.

Stay tuned, we are currently working on developing a draft of this strategy for your review.
