Last year the State Government and City of Melbourne announced that they would be seeking World heritage approval by UNESCO for the Queen Victoria Market. Part of the reason for that approval would be to guarantee heritage protection for the market.
That approval could take many years but according to today's Age, Lord Mayor Robert Doyle, has revealed the possibility of linking QVM with the existing World heritage Listing for the Exhibition Buildings and Carlton Gardens. Apparently the clear social and economic links between the two sites could extend the cover to both. That could be a very positive move for our market.
