Tuesday night’s Council meeting heralded another significant shift in the ongoing renewal discussions at QVM. An underground car park on the site of A, B, and C sheds was a preferred option for QVM and was a significant ingredient in the Capire consultations.
Traders have voiced their opposition to the unfavourable impact of a significant construction like an underground car park and expressed their concerns to the QVM Board and now the City Council. We are pleased to advise that the various car park options are now back on the table for consideration and negotiation. That doesn’t mean that an underground car park will not happen, nor does it mean that Council are likely to approve an above ground car park on the current site but it does mean that all options will be re-visited and perhaps some new ones brought up for evaluation.
