Timed parking limits are set to be installed near the new Department of Primary Industries building.
A staff recommendation to Orange City Council's next meeting on Tuesday night says restrictions were needed after nearby businesses and residents had said they were concerned about DPI visitors taking up parking in the streets.
It is proposed some one and two hour limits would be in place in areas including Anson, Prince, Dalton, March and Sale streets.
Unlimited parking areas would also be provided around the new complex.
The report to council's Infrastructure committee said council's parking inspector had drafted the report on the site.
"While the development has approximately 300 off-street car parks provided by a multi-storey car park there is concern from the surrounding businesses and community that this will not be enough car parks," the report said.
The key timed parking area is on Prince Street near the front entrance of the building.
Untimed parking is proposed around the site.
However, much of the timed parking, of two hour limits, is opposite the building and into adjacent blocks.
It said the provision of signs for the area would cost council $3000.
A separate report on general works said work was continuing around the DPI site ahead of its expected opening in October.
"The first stage of works to upgrade the Anson Street frontage for the new DPI site were undertaken," the report said.
"Works will eventually include a centre median island, asphalt surfacing and new bus shelter.
"This work is being done as a private works order for the property developer."
Meanwhile, a request by Canobolas Rural Technology High School, provided by the Member for Orange Phil Donato, seeking a zebra crossing near the school has been recommended to be rejected.
A staff report said the request did not indicate where the crossing was wanted. However, it said as a crossing already existed on Wakeford Street it was likely a second crossing was being sought for Icely Road.
It has instead recommended safety officers from the council and Roads and Maritime Services examine pedestrian movements outside the school.
