Review, comments and feedback on the final concept plans closed on January 22. Alot of highly valuable feedback and local knowledge was received, which is being considered as the project's Development Plan gets finalised.

The people of Ballarat are set to benefit from a transformational development of the Ballarat Station precinct.

The Victorian Government is partnering with the private sector to deliver a vibrant commercial, transport and community precinct that includes a new hotel and conference centre with new shopping and dining options.

The project will respect the historical significance of the precinct, while breathing new life into an underutilised central part of the city.

Many years of planning and consultation have helped shape the project’s intention, design and community benefits.

“The heritage of the station and surrounding precinct is of key importance to Ballarat for economic as well as cultural reasons, preserve it!”

“Prioritise the bus terminal. A dark, exposed stretch of Lydiard Street during the chill of a Ballarat winter is patently inadequate.”

“The Ballarat Station Precinct Plan is an innovative plan and I like the general site layout and the staging of the development process”

“Less parking than present capacity and what is provided is further from the station! Short sighted sell off to private developers.”

“Hotel design does not suit the environment. Hotel space is needed for further growth and should be utilised for parking and the urban buses.”

“Resident of Lydiard St, commuter & Airport Shuttle user. Plan fails on transport and respecting the heritage of the area. SOS. Who got paid?”

“An opportunity to link the North with the City? The railway viaduct and Creswick Rd creates a divide that this project amends. Thumbs up.”

“Traffic report is out of date as Lydiard St North will now have a huge number of buses running up and down it causing chaos! Thanks PTV!”
