Maya Dougherty, Strategic Planner at the City of Ballarat, who is facilitating the Imagine Ballarat East project has been working hard to synthesise the comments, feedback and issues being raised by the Ballarat East Community. Go Easties!
She is trying to locate the following sites that have been mentioned in the survey:
- Ballarat East Train Station Site
- Clarence Nursing Home
- The Old Girls School
- Ballarat East Council Gardens (is this the same as the Old Town Hall gardens?)
- Mining relics and dam (do you know which dam this is referring to?)
- Former George Farmer and Co. building
- Old Market Gardens
While we know a lot of these we thought it might be fun to see where you think they are… Please post your comments below.
Here is an update on how the process is going from Maya.
Imagine Ballarat East update:
I am currently putting together the Ballarat East Discussion Paper, the purpose of which is to bring together the ideas from the Ballarat East community to date alongside other knowledge about the local area. This, along with further input from the local community, will inform the development of planning controls to guide the future of the Ballarat East area.
The Discussion Paper is due to be released for public comment on 13 May, after the testing and linking workshop with the Establishment Group next week.
Thanks to everyone who has submitted, talked about, posted and advocated on behalf of our beautiful area.
