Rural Character Areas / Ballarat Imagine

The aim of the indicative characterisation framework is to describe in broad terms the landscape of the municipality as seen today and particularly those features and qualities that make certain areas distinct from each other. This section introduces the methodology that underpins our approach to characterising the Ballarat landscape. It considers previous broad-scale landscape assessment work and offers an initial overview of the visual character of the City of Ballarat area. Broad character areas are presented at two scales: 12 character areas across the whole municipality and 13 smaller character areas within the urban core of Ballarat. This work has been carried out specifically to deliver an indicative characterisation framework for the Ballarat Strategy and with the view that the results could be tested at Stage 2 alongside the values of the wider community More Information: Author: City of Ballarat Owner: City of Ballarat
