Recent analysis undertaken on behalf of EDQ has demonstrated that there is a limited and diminishing supply of industrial land within the Western Corridor. Willowbank is ideally located—providing links between productive areas and industries, workforces and consumers.
Willowbank represents a strategic opportunity to establish an industrial precinct that will meet South East Queensland’s industrial land requirements over the medium to long term. The proposed estate strategy is to develop a number of effectively planned stages that will optimise land allocation, meet end user requirements and provide the right conditions for economic growth.
EDQ lodged a Development Application with Ipswich City Council for a Reconfiguration of a Lot and Material Change of Use over 100 Hectares to establish Willowbank Stage One. With approval granted in 2017, this initial stage will include 18 lots plus 2 balance lots varying in size from 8000m2 to 20ha.
It is forecasted that Willowbank Stage One will deliver over 2500 Full Time Equivalents jobs by 2035.
