National Trust Gives Thumbs Up To QVM Renewal

According to an article in the Herald Sun today The National Trust has changed its view on the Queen Victoria Market Renewal proposal.

Having expressed concerns about heritage issues and the Munro site development, the Trust now says it is satisfied the the renewal process is necessary to ensure the long term security of the market.

The Council’s decision to reduce the scale of excavation and the market’s business and retail plans were apparently instrumental in the Trust’s change of heart. The Trust said it expects the open character of the market sheds to be retained.
