  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.
    In December 2017 Council approved a 25 lot large lot residential subdivision at 3991 O’Connell Road, Kelso (known as “Appledore”) and a 17 lot large lot residential subdivision at 4031 O’Connell Road, Kelso (known as “Littlebourne”).

    Both properties have frontage to O’Connell Road and Blue Ridge Drive. As a result of both subdivisions there will be lots with primary access fronting what is now known as Blue Ridge Drive.

    The road currently known as Blue Ridge Drive commences at O’Connell Road and extends for approximately 450 metres before entering what was historically the Blue Ridge Estate. Blue Ridge Drive then continues around

    In December 2017 Council approved a 25 lot large lot residential subdivision at 3991 O’Connell Road, Kelso (known as “Appledore”) and a 17 lot large lot residential subdivision at 4031 O’Connell Road, Kelso (known as “Littlebourne”).

    Both properties have frontage to O’Connell Road and Blue Ridge Drive. As a result of both subdivisions there will be lots with primary access fronting what is now known as Blue Ridge Drive.

    The road currently known as Blue Ridge Drive commences at O’Connell Road and extends for approximately 450 metres before entering what was historically the Blue Ridge Estate. Blue Ridge Drive then continues around the external perimeter of the site.

    Houses within the existing Blue Ridge Estate are numbered to Blue Ridge Drive commencing at No.1 through to No.187.
    In order to facilitate consecutive numbering of the proposed new lots fronting Blue Ridge Drive it will be necessary to rename the first 450 metres of Blue Ridge Drive (from O’Connell Road to the western boundaries of Lot 14, DP 1050220 and Lot 1, DP 867504). This avoids the need to renumber existing properties within the Estate or to adopt non-sequential street numbering.

    The owner of 3991 O’Connell Road has requested that the entrance road be renamed to Appledore Drive in recognition of the longstanding name of his property – “Appledore” also known as the Appledore Orchard.

    Appledore Drive complies with Bathurst Regional Council's Guidelines for the Naming of Roads
