Latrobe Street Saleyards Precinct Urban Renewal Project


Relocation of the Central Victoria Livestock Exchange from its operation at Latrobe Street presents as a significant opportunity for the City of Ballarat to work with the community to consider new uses for the site and to also investigate opportunities for the broader Ballarat West industrial precinct.

This precinct is the gateway to the city’s West and there are opportunities to consolidate and enhance existing employment and jobs, which in the future could be better supported by further establishing a role for educational and residential uses within the precinct.

As an action from the Ballarat Strategy: Our Vision for 2040, the City of Ballarat is now preparing an urban renewal plan which will identify new opportunities for both the saleyards site, and for the broader Ballarat West industrial area.
