$7 million Ballan Library and Community Hub will be constructed in the heart of Ballan.
It will include library services, Maternal and Child Health services, an art exhibition space, visitor information centre and community meeting rooms.
The new library has been made possible thanks to a $5 million grant from the Andrews Labor Government and Moorabool Shire Council making a contribution $2 million. The community hub and library is expected to open in 2023 on the site of the old Commonwealth Bank in Inglis Street.
Ballan’s old sports pavilion demolished to make way for a new $4 million facility
In February the old sports pavilion will be demolished to make way for a new state of the art facility.
The new sports pavilion will include a large function room, kitchen and bar, office space, meeting rooms and storage sheds for the sporting clubs.
New change rooms will have four female friendly change rooms, umpire change rooms, and a tiered concourse will provide the best view of the oval.
The location of the pavilion will allow for an extension of the oval to meet senior AFL football standards.
Construction will commence in the coming weeks with works expected to be finished by October 2022.
The Andrews government recognise the need for regional communities to have the same standard of facilities as those in the city.
Ballan is a growing community and we are planning for the communities amenities to grow with it.
