Precinct Renewal Community Engagement – Phase 2 Report

A report on the second phase of community engagement for the Queen Victoria Market Precinct Renewal is now available.

The Queen Victoria Market is one step closer to securing its place as one of the world’s great market precincts, with the release of a report on the second phase of community engagement for market renewal.

Approximately 2,290 people participated in engagement activities, with 700 people sharing their ideas during the four week consultation period.

The City of Melbourne invited the community, shoppers and traders to have their say on five draft renewal themes of heritage, open space, car parking, access, attractions, retail, hospitality and services. The themes were supported by a proposed future lay-out of the market site and surrounding precinct.

This feedback will inform the development of a draft master plan which will be released for more community engagement later this year.

Our aim is to preserve the Queen Victoria Market’s heritage and authentic atmosphere, while allowing the market precinct to evolve to meet contemporary needs of traders, shoppers and the growing city.
