icubed was commissioned by Economic Development Queensland (EDQ) to undertake a development risk assessment for the relocation of the Eat Street Markets from its present site to a new site a few hundred metres to the east along Macarthur Avenue in the Northshore Development precinct. The Northshore precinct is slowly transitioning from an industrial estate to residential and commercial uses. EDQ required a risk assessment to be undertaken to evaluate the potential impacts from neighbouring industrial and hazardous industry sites.
icubed undertook a review of the existing hazardous industries in the vicinity of the proposed markets and assessed the risks posed by those industries on the relocated markets against accepted land use planning criteria. The outcomes were favourable with no risk impacts forecast above normal standards for facilities of this type. icubed is pleased to have played a small part in the relocation of these iconic markets and look forward to visiting an expanded and enhanced facility with improved parking arrangements.
