The plan is a strategic document outlining what the City of Ballarat will do to help achieve Council’s and the community’s vision of Ballarat as a proud city that is bold, vibrant and thriving.
The plan describes Council’s priorities and outcomes for its four-year term and how these will be resourced. It will also help reinforce Ballarat’s position as the capital of Western Victoria over coming decades. In comparison to previous years, Council Plan 2017-2021 is a streamlined document that will provide a clear, easy to understand and overarching vision, mission and purpose as well as goals, priorities, outcomes, progress measures, and key facts and figures.
The plan has been divided into four goals:
Liveability: Improve the quality of life for our community
Prosperity: Advance our economic position as the capital of Western Victoria
Sustainability: Protect, maintain and enhance our built and natural assets
Accountability: Provide strong and decisive leadership, and transparent governance
