The City of Ballarat Community Vision 2021-2031 was adopted by Council at the August 25 2021 Council Meeting.


The Community Vision 2021-2031 was  informed by a large-scale community engagement process in February and March 2021. A Community Panel, representative of the Ballarat community, further developed community input received during this first stage of engagement via a deliberative engagement process in April and May.


The Panel developed the vision statement, principles for decision making and the key themes for action presented in the Vision.
