    Thanks for asking this question and apologies it has taken us awhile to get back to you.
    We were in the process of working out how we could make this happen.
    For the next month, you can go to the Ophir Road Resource Recovery Centre and, for a gold-coin donation, you can take home a brick from the maternity ward.

  • I am a nearby resident and thank you for keeping us in touch. This is certainly progress after 6 long years. Looking ahead however, to assist with future flow of traffic in this precinct, I would like to know if the Orange City Council plans to reinstate FULL road access through Sale Street in the section between Dalton and Prince Streets.

    Thanks for your question. The intention at this stage is to leave the current parking arrangements in place in Sale St until plans are firmed up on the kind of residential use that could happen on that end of the former hospital site.

  • Hi Orange city council first of all what date is planned for the hospital to be knocked down is it this month? And second of all instead of putting the dpi building into the site can something more interesting go into there for the community of Orange.

    Thanks for the question, Council's contractor is on site now preparing it to become a construction zone, Demolition is expected to start soon. It will be a slow process at first, as a specialist goes through each floor and removes any hazardous materials. Then it will be like a deconstruction, of sorts, over the next few months. 
    As for something interesting going there? No decisions have been made regarding what will become of the site. Do you have any ideas?
