New homes planned for Miners Rest close to sale yards


50 new homes could be built in Miners Rest just over a 1 Kilometre from the largest sale yards in the state, the Central Victorian Livestock Exchange (CVLX).

A development application has been received by the City of Ballarat for 54 homes on the 10 hectare site between Victoria and Hamlin Streets.
CVLX is currently planting over 4400 shrubs and trees to help reduce any odor from the sale yards following complaints from existing residents to the EPA.
