Live Music Strategic Plan


Over recent years, urban councils across Australia have been developing Live Music Strategic Plans to reduce regulatory and non-regulatory barriers and embrace opportunities.

The City of Ballarat is one of the first regional councils to develop a Live Music Strategic Plan, capitalising on strong community interest in live music and live music enterprises in our region. It's also a key part of the City of Ballarat 2040 Strategy.

Live Music Strategy

The City of Ballarat Live Music Strategic Plan has a scope of five years, and defines the goals and objectives underpinning support of local and regional live music and identifies actions to strengthen development, appropriate to Council’s role within the community.
