Deputy Mayor of Ballarat, Peter Eddy, has defended the amount of time it’s taken to create a place of contemplation at the city’s old orphanage site.

Over its lifetime, the former orphanage on Victoria Street housed more that 4,500 children.

There’s been recent community concerns the project had stalled, however councillor Eddy says work on the project continues.
