The proposed Queen Victoria Market Precinct Renewal Project is a major initiative to preserve and renew the Queen Victoria Market, creating an expanded market precinct.

Key themes emerging from the first phase of community and stakeholder engagement include:
  sense of place
  community and culture
  produce and products
  heritage
  transport and access
  tourism and marketing
  sustainability and economy
  future renewal implementation.

The second phase of community engagement will be undertaken in April 2014 and will ask community and stakeholders for feedback on a draft Conceptual Framework for the market and surrounding precinct.
