A major auto parts chain is set to head up a $3.8 million development planned for Orange.

A 13-unit industrial site is proposed for 21-25 Peisley Street.

Repco has been named as a key tenant in the planned complex, which Orange City Council staff have recommended be approved by councillors on Tuesday night at their next meeting.

Repco currently has a smaller business in Kite Street.

A report to council says the work would involve demolition of a shed and office on the site and the erection of 13 retail and industrial units ranging from 173-700 square metres, with 58 parking spaces.

“The design is of a modern style and would complement other buildings in the industrial strip of the south end of Peisley Street,” it says.

“One anchor tenant proposed for the northern most unit fronting Peisley Street is Repco.

"This development is permissible in this zone, provides ample parking, is compliant and the overall design will add to the character and streetscape of the area.”

It said the Repco store specialised in car parts and tools.

“The proposal will involve a large display area of car-related tools, compressors, ramps, specialty equipment, oils and 4WD accessories.”
