At the council meeting, the representatives for the development from Urbis Pty Ltd ran through a list of companies/organisations they had support from. This list of supporters included Tourism Victoria. Would this be an issue we’d need to query of the Tourism Minister? We would think so.
It is a little confusing. How can Tourism Victoria and the tourism minister be in support of this development when Tourism Victoria’s recently launched Heritage Victoria promotion “celebrates” Melbourne’s architectural heritage as a tourism draw.
“Celebrating Heritage Victoria” so much they’re considering demolishing a 100 year old theatre?
Bit of a contradiction don’t you think?
