New rural and industrial land use strategy up for comment

The councils of Blayney, Cabonne and Orange have jointly prepared a draft Subregional Rural and Industrial Land Use Strategy.

The strategy is now on public exhibition for community comment, and the exhibition period will include a face-to-face community information session.

The Strategy seeks to respond to key issues affecting industrial and rural lands.

It aims to protect and promote economic, environmental and landscape values associated with rural land, as well as respond to competing demands for the use of rural land.

The process so far:

An initial briefing workshop was held on 29 July 2019.

A report was then presented to Orange City Council on 7 April 2020. That meeting considered the report and decided to defer for 6 months.

A report was presented to Orange City Council’s Planning and Development Committee on 6 October 2020

That meeting took the decision to go ahead with public exhibition.
