New plans for Pentridge Prison to be considered by Heritage Victoria

Following the recent news that Heritage Victoria has granted a permit for a controversial 16-storey tower at the former Pentridge Prison, the National Trust Advocacy Team this week responded to two major applications for new developments at B Division and A Division.

The B Division permit is for an 18-level residential and hotel tower to the southwest of B Division; adaptive reuse of B Division and the B Division annex; openings in the historic bluestone walls; and the redevelopment of the south-east exercise yard.
