The Cardigan Village Plan


The City of Ballarat began working with the Cardigan Village Community on ‘The Cardigan Village Plan: Our Township Towards 2040’ in March 2016. The Plan will give the Cardigan Village Community a long-term vision and action plan. It will help the community and City of Ballarat manage change in Cardigan Village into the future.

The Cardigan Village Plan is part of a broader ‘Local Plans for our Townships’ program which will develop local plans for each of Ballarat’s six townships.


The Plan will:

  • Reflect the community’s long-term vision and provide an action plan for meeting this vision
  • Help community groups make their case when applying for grants or lobbying for funding
  • Help the City of Ballarat prioritise its investment in Cardigan Village
  • Identify land use planning actions and potential changes to the Ballarat Planning Scheme
  • Include actions the community can deliver itself
  • Help the community and City of Ballarat to manage change.


The Cardigan Village Plan needs to be the community’s plan, not just Council’s plan. With this in mind, Council will consult with the people of Cardigan Village in multiple stages. The consultation program began with a drop in session during March as well as a questionnaire sent out at the same time. We have compiled this feedback into a draft Township Plan and would like to present it to you for discussion on Monday 5 September 2016.
