On exhibition for public comment and Expressions of Interest
As part of its decision-making processes, Orange City Council frequently puts significant proposed changes of policy or direction on public exhibition to invite comment from the community, before a final decision is taken.
Other opportunities to engage with the council are put openly to the whole community when the Council seeks 'expressions of interest' on a proposal.
On this page, you can find details of a number of matters which are currently up for public comment or seeking expressions of interest.
Under each subject heading you can find:
- links where you can find more information or download documents.
- the deadline date for making a comment or expressing an interest.
- and also find how details of how to make a public submission.
There are currently two items on exhibition for public comment, or to seek expressions of interest.

Orange City Council seeks community input and feedback on a range of issues.
Stakeholder engagement is an important element of the Council decision-making process.
Comments and submissions must be made in writing so they can be seriously considered and the information collated into a report.
Comments can only be considered as formal submissions if the author's details are included. Submissions could be made public as part of Council reports.
Because a number of matters are always up for public comment, submissions must make it clear which topic is being addressed.
Submissions can be sent by mail to:
Orange City Council
PO Box 35
Orange NSW 2800
Submissions can also be made by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
