Searoads Shed Slab Remediation work Following on from the removal of the old SeaRoads Shed at the end of last year, we have been busy remediating the soil underneath.
This has included the removal of redundant pipelines and fuel storage tanks, and working with our environmental consultant, AECOM, who conducted a range of tests to identify the remediation needed to treat the residual contamination.
A remediation plan was developed and these works have now been undertaken, and final testing is underway for review by an environmental auditor. This marks the final area to remediate from the original Mac Point site.
The last key section to remediate is in the south-west corner of the site, which was added in 2015 and is where the old Hobart gas works stood. These works are currently at the tender stage.

Edible Precinct Produce Our fantastic local horticulturalist Sarah is busy planting for Spring.
“The Edible Precinct is a community garden space with a focus on inclusion, education and community support. It is the largest indigenous edible and medicinal wicking bed garden in Australia and homes a wide range of bush tucker plants used by the local Aboriginal community mixed with exotic edibles to create a beautiful food forest and edible ecosystem,”.
“I have intermingled flowers, herbs, fruit, and vegetables together in the French style of Potager gardening, which is a practice used since medieval times to create an ecosystem and interesting landscape.”
- Sarah Clark, Mac Point Horticulturalist.
The Edible Precinct is open to the public and used every day for locals and community groups alike.
Precinct Plan development
As many of you are aware, we’re currently working on a draft Precinct Plan for Mac Point. We’re currently working through the written responses received, including a fantastic response to the survey available on our website.
There will be further updates in the coming month which will be posted on our website www.macpoint.com/precinctplan

High Voltage Civil Works are scheduled to commence in October on the corner of Evans Street and Davey Street.
We anticipate this will require a period of traffic management for approximately four weeks, a plan will be in place to manage any disruptions to traffic during these essential services upgrades.
