Survey of Significant Landscape Features
Orange City Council engaged consultants, Andrew Neil Pty Ltd, an established consultancy company in planning and landscape design services, to complete the Survey of Significant Landscape features in 2006.
A detailed investigation including site inspections, a review of historic data as well as stakeholder and community consultation led to the development of a list of over 247 Significant Landscape Features.
The survey was highly commended in the Cultural Heritage Awards.
The document identifies, locates and provides an illustrated Statement of Significance for each precinct, place, object, element, view and vista. In addition the project team has mapped the evolution of the landscape in a series of maps dating from pre European settlement to current day in 30 year increments.
The places of significance includes numerous streetscapes, Lake Canobolas, native vegetation and heritage buildings such as duration cottages, Croagh Patrick and Duntryleague.
A web-based report has been developed which can be accessed by the community, tourists and students.
