Suburb Snapshot: Cardigan Village

By Sarah Wilson

The size of Cardigan Village is approximately 0.8 square kilometres with the population being 505 in 2011 and by the 2016 Census had increased to 668 showing a population growth of 32.3% in the area during that time. Cardigan Village was established as a small subdivision of 100 lots in the 1970s and formed a satellite township of Ballarat.

The Village was developed in three distinct areas, with the most established area being the Cardigan Village Central Estate, which is bounded by Madden Road, Windermere Way and Remembrance Drive. Located 7.5 kilometres west of Ballarat, it is separated from urban Ballarat by an expansive, flat agricultural landscape with little tree cover apart from an occasional small plantation area.

Lake Burrumbeet, located to the west of the Village, forms an extensive and exceptional water feature in the area. The openness of the surrounding landscape affords many residents of Cardigan Village clear skies and long panoramic views to the hills and mountain ranges to the north and west.

CoreLogic data indicates that the predominant age group in Cardigan Village is 0-9 years with households in Cardigan Village being primarily couples with children and are likely to be repaying $1,800 – $2,399 per month on mortgage repayments and in general, people in Cardigan Village work in a clerical occupation. In 2011, 86.8% of the homes in Cardigan Village were owner-occupied compared with 87.8% in 2016.
