The City of Melbourne is passionate about identifying and protecting the city's rich traditions, memories, places and objects. Our Heritage Strategy sets out Council’s commitment to the heritage of the city.

We're reviewing heritage in Carlton to better understand the area’s evolution of built and cultural heritage.

The review will uncover, document and celebrate heritage in the area. It will also assess existing heritage buildings and precincts.

The study area includes two distinct precincts: to the south of Grattan Street and to its north. It excludes the University of Melbourne precinct and the World Heritage site including the Exhibition Building, Carlton Gardens and the Melbourne Museum.

In 2018 community consultation was open from 17 September to 19 November, which asked the local community to share stories about what makes Carlton meaningful and distinctive.
