The City of Melbourne’s $250 million investment in the Queen Victoria Market Precinct Renewal is critical to protecting and strengthening the market and all that is great about it – its heritage, its traditions and most importantly its people.

More than 7500 people helped shape the program’s Master Plan. Now, as we move into the delivery of the market renewal program, there’ll be a number of opportunities to have your say.

Here is where you will find information about current opportunities to get involved and previous community engagement.

For more information on the market renewal program, visit the Queen Victoria Market Precinct Renewal.

We’re fast-tracking much needed maintenance works and a number of exciting projects across the market.

Adjacent to the market at the Munro site, construction of the city’s largest community hub and 500 new market car parking spaces will start.

We’ll engage with the community on how to create more open space in the market precinct.

And we’ll continue important conversations with the people who know the market, use it, and work at it on the delivery and location of critical market infrastructure including customer facilities, car parking, and trader needs such as storage and waste management.

Current community opportunities

The People’s Panel deliberative engagement process has now concluded with the panel’s report presented to the Future Melbourne Committee on 10 December. For more information about the process, report and outcomes, visit People’s Panel to shape market infrastructure.

A Committee of Trustees has been appointed, providing traders, customers and community representatives a greater voice in the Queen Victoria Market.

In 2019 we’ll start a conversation with everyone about new open spaces in the market precinct.
