Brisbane City Council has advised that the Northey Street community garden site at Windsor has been temporarily closed to the public, effective immediately, following the discovery of demolition waste during a Council inspection of the site related to the proposed development of new facilities on the site.
Council will now be undertaking further investigations to determine the future management of the site.
The results of the investigations will determine if there are any impacts. Community safety is Council’s number one priority and these steps have been taken as a precautionary measure.
Council is working with the operators of the community gardens site to look at alternative arrangements. It is anticipated the markets will run as scheduled this weekend, and Council is continuing to work with the market operators.
For further information, residents can contact 1800 669 416 or Council’s contact centre on 3403 8888.
