Statement of Significance

This subdivision formed part of the regional growth centre strategy undertaken by the Bathurst Orange Development Corporation (BODC). The strategy was launched in 1975 and this subdivision was one of the early concepts of the strategy. However, the plan for this estate took many years to realise and building started in the 1980s and successive stages were released into the 1990s.

Bel Air was identified as having significance within the landscape by the community consultation process.
