The next phase of the Lords Place south Future City upgrade community consultation is moving on line, by giving residents the opportunity to share their ideas through Council’s ‘YourSay Orange’ consultation website.
“Council hosted two face to face forums with businesses and community members earlier this week and we received some really interesting ideas on what Lords Place south could look like,” Cr Reg Kidd said. “We now want to get more people involved as Lords Place is one of the key mixed commercial precincts in Orange, which links to our civic precinct and recreational facilities.”
The design of Lords Place between Summer and Kite streets is based on the Future City framework adopted by Council following a significant consultation process with the community and urban designers SJB.
Cr Kidd said the framework provides some guiding principles.
“Walkability, making our CBD more attractive so more people spend more time there, and exploring ways to increase the number of people living and working in the CBD are key Future City themes.

Orange City Council’s Employment and Economic Development Policy Committee Chair Cr Tony Mileto said the next step is coming up with a detailed concept design for the block of Lords Place south of Summer Street.
“We want to hear what you like about Lords Place now and what Lords Place should be like in the future,” Cr Mileto said. “It’s important that the Council listens to the community to get the best design possible. The simplest way to do that is to go online and visit YourSay Orange.”
The consultation is open until Wednesday 28 July.
