Q2. What do we want?
Today in the local paper The Courier, page 21, historian Anne Beggs Sunter told of developments happening around Ballarat, both good and not so good. She wrote about what people are doing to get involved in the process. Ballarat East Network (BE Net) was acknowledged for doing lots of work bringing the community together over issues of over-development. BE Net has also been contacted over the last two weeks about developments in other areas of Ballarat, seeking our advice.
BE Net is strong because our community is strong, wants to share information, and are happy to help out the neighbours. Our major aim is to support people to be involved in how our area is going to look in the future. We have been lucky sharing this beautiful area for many years, over looked by developers. Now its our turn to rise and protect the things we value as important here in Ballarat East.
So onto Question 2 in our quest to support proper planning here in the East. Question 1 is still available here and I would encourage you to continue to answer as many times as you like…
In positive terms, what do you want for the future of Ballarat East?
This is a big picture, broad question, about the whole of Ballarat East. You do not need to live in the East to answer, we believe this area is important to maintain for the future of Ballarat as a whole.
