People desperate to find somewhere in Orange for self-storage have received a boost, with a $3 million development application approved on Tuesday night.



The approved facility will have 282 self-storage units.


The Storco Storage Systems complex would be built in an industrial area in Gateway Crescent on the city’s eastern fringe.

The $2.99 million project is proposed to be open from 9am-5pm however the storage units would be accessible to renters 24/7.

It would be spread over two floors with a central loading bay and hoist/lift.



A council staff report has proposed there be 15 on-site car parks.


“The proposal represents a response to the demand for storage solutions in the city as the trend for more compact homes/lots continues to grow,” it said.


Cr Tony Mileto told the council meeting the proposal was a good fit for the area and would benefit the community.

“There is a high demand for self storage in Orange and obviously these 282 self storage units will meet that demand,” he said.
