This morning, The Hon Catherine King launched the newly formed Greater Ballarat Alliance of Councils (GBAC) in Creswick. The alliance is made up of Mayors and CEOs from Hepburn Shire, City of Ballarat, Pyrenees Shire, Golden Plains Shire, Moorabool Shire and Central Goldfields Shire. This regional group of councils will be a collective voice for the region and advocate on common issues such as transport, housing and digital connectivity. Hepburn Shire is proud and excited to be part of the GBAC, as there is a greater ability to influence important State and Federal Government decision-making in a partnership.  For more information, visit
