Work in progress
January 2018. The neglected and controversial Ballarat Civic Hall site sits empty on Crown land before it undergoes an $8 million refurbishment to return the building to its former glory. In a few months this site will change significantly due to a revitalisation project by the Victorian Government in partnership with the City of Ballarat, due be completed by early 2021.
The Ballarat GovHub will be home to up to 1000 Victorian Government employees, including up to 600 public sector positions relocated from Melbourne, helping to revitalise a major part of the Ballarat CBD, generate long-term jobs growth, increase business confidence and further private sector investment.
