New lot of townhouses proposed for Canadian


A new lot of 35 townhouses has been proposed in Canadian.

The homes, currently listed on Ballarat council’s planning website, would be located off Spencer Street and are described as three bedroom and measure 200 square metres or smaller.

While housing availability has been an issue in the city, Committee for Ballarat chief executive Michael Poulton says the bigger issue remains affordability.

"In Ballarat it's more around affordable housing than access and connectivity, so less about availability and more about affordability," he said.
