About the project

The Delacombe Estate in Ballarat is located about 6km south-west of central Ballarat. The site is near the new Delacombe Town Centre and the Doug Dean Reserve, an area highly valued by the community. The site has about 180 homes that were mostly constructed in the 1970s. Access to surrounding open space, community facilities and shops could be improved by creating better connections that integrate the estate with the surrounding community.

Project timeline

Late 2019: The project was introduced to the community on 29 November 2019 at the Dalacombe Community Christmas Party. We also invited expressions of interest for a consultative committee to inform the project. 

Early 2020: The first phase of the Delacombe Estate revitalisation project will be to consult with the community about what they value about the area and what they would like to see improved. The information gathered in the first phase will help form a draft masterplan.

Mid 2020: Once a draft masterplan has been prepared, it will be brought to the community for feedback.

Late 2020: The masterplan will be updated in response to community feedback and finalised. Actions in the masterplan will begin.

Have your say

Community Consultation

The strongest community plans are community led.

Consultation is at the heart of the planning process and we will be consulting with stakeholders and the community throughout the project to understand their needs and to make sure that the plan delivers the best possible outcomes.

Public consultation will occur in 2 key phases:

  • Begining in March 2020, we will work with community members to build a shared understanding and vision for Delacombe Estate.
  • During the second phase in late 2020, we will seek feedback from the community on the draft plan.

Consultative Committee

The Delacombe Estate Consultative Committee will provide residents and community groups the opportunity to take part in the project and provide detailed feedback.

The committee will be chaired by Juliana Addison, State Member for Wendouree.

Thank you to the residents and community members who expressed interest in joining the committee.

Expressions of interest are now closed. We look forward to consulting with the committee and the broader community in 2020.

Consultative Committee members will adhere to the Consultative Committee Terms of Reference (Word) and Consultative Committee Code of Conduct (Word).
