A $5.3 million development proposed by Housing Plus for 19 single-storey houses at Emerald Street in north Orange will be considered by a planning panel next week.
The Western Regional Planning Panel will conduct the hearing at the Orange City Council chambers from noon on Monday.
Orange City Council was barred from making a ruling on the development application as the stated capital investment value of the development was above $5 million.
However, council has made a submission to the hearing which asks the panel to "investigate and confirm" the true capital investment value of the development.
The council has also expressed concern about the planned use of the housing.
"Council is concerned about the uncertainty of the component of 'social housing' proposed by the applicant given contradictory statements in both documentation and the media," it said.
And council has concerns about the number of rubbish bins.
"Council is concerned that the garbage storage area would adversely impact on the neighbors and the streetscape, given it is required to house 57 bins," the submission said.
LOCATION: Emerald Street north Orange
The development would involve the demolition of an old house and other structures to make way for seven one-bedroom homes and 12 two-bedroom homes.
There would be private open space and car parking for each dwelling with driveway access via Pearl Court and shared internal roads.
The panel hearing was originally to have occurred in December but was postponed due to an "administrative error."
