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.
