Our day to day business grind often causes us to neglect “higher” issues like city development master plans but this one has direct impact on the Queen Victoria Market. We are considered part of an important urban renewal area that is currently under review. The Melbourne City Council is seeking public consultation on its plans before 24th June.
The plans may be viewed at a number of locations including the Melbourne Town Hall and North Melbourne Library at 66 Errol St. The study that involves the QVM is called The City North Structure Plan. The Melbourne City Council and our own Queen Victoria Market are urging traders to take an interest and contribute to the debate.
Sounds like a quick trip up to the North Melbourne Library may be a small price to pay for protecting our future.
