Statement of Significance

Ploughman’s Lane has significance as a linear landscape that serves to divide suburban Orange in the East from the rural fringe in the West. The lane is framed on either side by an avenue of Poplars. Contrasts of landscape character are apparent to either side of the lane with small rural lots, garden suburb style subdivisions, Wentworth Golf Club and a wetland area all adjacent to the lane. These diverse landscapes are given a sense of unity by the avenue of poplars.

The community consultation process identified Ploughman’s Lane as having significance as a landscape feature.
