Update on Project

In response to concerns raised by some landholders, the City of Ballarat has undertaken research to understand any issues within the Dowling Forest Precinct, including a review of the property market and investigations into planning controls. This research identified a number of key concerns which may be able to be addressed by some changes to the Planning Scheme.

The Dowling Forest Precinct Planning Controls Review was presented to Council for consideration for consideration at its Planning Special Committee meeting on 16 October 2019, with Council adopting the recommendation to proceed to a planning scheme amendment to introduce the changes to the Ballarat Planning Scheme.

The final report can be found on the right hand side panel of this website under 'Document Library'.

What are the next steps?

Council officers will commence a planning scheme amendment to implement the findings of the Review. This will involve a public exhibition period where all landholders and interested parties will have the opportunity to make a formal submission.
