The Royal Exhibition Building and Carlton Gardens was inscribed on the United National Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) World Heritage List on 1 July 2004.
The Victorian Heritage Act 1995 requires that a World Heritage Plan be developed for listed places.
The process to develop the World Heritage Plan is managed by a Steering Committee for the Royal Exhibition Building and Carlton Gardens and comprises of Heritage Victoria, and land managers Melbourne Museum and the City of Melbourne.
The Steering Committee requested public comment on the draft World Heritage Management Plan in 2011. An amended plan and set of Committee recommendations have now been developed and submitted to the State Minister for Planning for approval, following the public comment period. At the conclusion of that process, the Plan is then sent to the Federal Government for consideration and approval, prior to being presented to the World Heritage Committee of UNESCO.
