Melbourne’s global reputation as a ‘design city’ has never been more important. Co-existing with and emerging from the Covid-19 pandemic, the City of Melbourne remains committed to maintaining Melbourne’s status as a highly competitive, attractive, and liveable city.
To support the City of Melbourne’s commitment to the high quality design of the built environment it is launching the Design Excellence Advisory Committee (DEAC) and the Melbourne Design Review Panel (MDRP).
The DEAC and the MDRP are key components of the Design Excellence Program which aims to champion both high quality development and public realm design, applying design leadership and a range of innovative processes.
