About Councillor Tillett

Elected in October 2016, Councillor Grant Tillett is a long-time community activist who brings impeccable business credentials to his role as a North Ward Councillor.

Cr Tillett has been self-employed most of his life with extensive and varied business interests. He is a fourth-generation master stonemason; a farmer producing dairy, wool, cattle, fat lambs, cropping and fruit; and he also worked as a wholesale butcher, a livestock trader, and in the harness racing and construction industries.

Cr Tillett worked as the director of his own national transport company for 60 years - as a result he has a strong and ongoing interest in transport and associated transport infrastructure.  He believes Ballarat’s economic prosperity hinges on the delivery of critical commercial and commuter transport links between Ballarat and Melbourne. Lobbying for the provision of appropriate road and rail networks, including new train stations in the municipality and associated parking infrastructure, is one of Cr Tillett’s key priorities.
