CVLX Saleyards

Central Victorian Livestock Exchange saleyards

In 2016, the Minister for Planning approved Amendment C185 to the Ballarat Planning Scheme to allow for the development of the Central Victorian Livestock Exchange in Miners Rest. 
This new livestock exchange replaces the 158-year-old facility at Latrobe Street, which is now closed.

We acknowledges the community’s strong concerns about odour impact from the CVLX facility. 

We are working closely with the EPA who have been monitoring the situation closely and have recently issued a Pollution Abatement Notice (PAN) on the facility.  The EPA post updates on the process on its website - . 

We are also undertaking an independent odour review to explore the most effective odour mitigation options to resolve the issue.  We will continue to advocate on behalf of the community and work with EPA and CVLX to ensure that odour is satisfactorily managed. 

We strongly encourage people to report their concerns around odour issues to the Environment Protection Authority and CVLX.  This is important for gaining an understanding the full extent of the ongoing issue. These can be reported to:
