Lake Bolac Community Survey

Every 5 years, the Lake Bolac Development Association and Ararat Rural City Council (ARCC) update the Lake Bolac Community Action Plan (CAP). The aim of this survey is to gain a better understanding of the wants and needs of the Lake Bolac community. Based on the responses, we can develop actionable objectives that will benefit everyone, now and for future generations. The aim of the CAP is to continuously work towards improving the amenities, infrastructure and liveability of Lake Bolac for all residents.

The survey will be available until the end of January 2021, feedback will be collated and a community gathering will be organised to prioritise suggestions into the CAP 2021-2025.
