Implementation Framework endorsed

The City of Melbourne has released an Implementation Framework to guide the renewal of the Queen Victoria Market.

Over the next five years, up to $250 million will be spent to create a world-class market precinct, with better facilities and new public open spaces at its heart.

The framework was endorsed by Melbourne City Council on Tuesday 26 July 2016, subject to some changes. These changes are outlined in the Council resolution. You can also listen to the audio from the meeting.

The City of Melbourne, in partnership with Queen Victoria Market management, is now reviewing the Implementation Framework and will make the required changes before releasing the revised document to the public as soon as possible.

The framework provides details on proposed key timeframes for all renewal projects and, importantly, sets out how the market will continue to operate throughout the entire renewal program.

The document reflects the key projects outlined in the Master Plan which, following extensive trader and community engagement, was endorsed by Council in July 2015.

Further information about the renewal program can be found on the City of Melbourne website.
