As Minister for Planning, I support a vibrant and sustainable fresh food market in the precinct celebrating the importance Preston Market has for the communities in Melbourne’s north.
This includes a mix of uses across the site, making it a great place for people to visit, live and meet, and for local businesses to thrive.
The Government will take into account the advice of the Standing Advisory Committee, the Victorian Planning Authority and all the different views about the market and come to an independent decision.
A final decision about this matter will occur in 2023.
