Lucknow Village Masterplan
Orange City Council is beginning the process of developing a masterplan to guide the future of the village of Lucknow.
Lucknow, a gateway to Orange, is a village steeped in history and heritage significance with the capacity to either fall further into disrepair or to become a vibrant village with a population critical mass that can sustain growth and provide the lift the village needs.
A Masterplan or Lucknow Scoping Study has been prepared to a draft stage and is now ready for exhibition and public comment.
The scoping study is based on a consideration of opportunities and constraints across the village including :
- previous mining activities and legacy impacts,
- slope and surface water flows,
- highway issues,
- potential future residential zonings,
- key views,
- existing character,
- significant vegetation,
- connectivity and
- an understanding of elements required to create a greater ‘sense of place’ and support a village.
Consultation with landowners or commercial operators will now begin while the study document on display for community comment.
