Boarding house deferred
Last night’s (4 May 2021) Council meeting deferred the Development Application to convert a number of residential units in Curran Street to a boarding house.
The proposed development would have a total of 15 rooms including an onsite manager’s room, seven car parking spaces, three motor cycle parking spaces, and a communal room.
New child care centre approved
Last night’s meeting approved a DA for a proposed new centre-based child care facility at the Bloomfield Medical Centre site on Forest Road.
The proposal involves construction of a purpose-built facility with capacity for 155 children aged between 0-5 years, and would operate between 6am to 8pm Monday to Friday.
Hospital site re-zoning rejected
Last night’s Council meeting rejected a proposed re-zoning which would allow a neighbourhood shopping centre to be built alongside the new Bloomfield Medical centre inn Forest Road.
Following community concerns about the initial larger proposal, a smaller-scale proposal had been explored.

The Council members to attend are Mayor Kidd, Cr Duffy, Cr Whitton and Cr Nugent.
Last night’s meeting decided that Mayor Kidd would represent Orange City Council at the NSW Local Rods Conference at Parliament Hose in Sydney on 7 June.
