Right to the Night

Thank you to those who contributed to our Right to the Night map to help create safer public spaces for women in the Ballarat CBD.

You shared safety experiences with us between March and May 2018, using the map to pinpoint CDB locations that make you feel safe or unsafe.

You identified 305 locations in the CBD, 70 of which you considered as safe spaces and 235 unsafe spaces.

What happens next?

After collecting information from the community about safety in the CBD we will:

  • map the locations that make you feel safe or unsafe and explain the reasons why.
  • identify ways to improve the public spaces that make you feel unsafe.
  • tell public space designers and developers about your needs.
  • advocate for public space design that encourages safety and inclusiveness.
