Public toilets, parking and derelict shops have been raised as some of the biggest issues affecting Wellington's CBD.
Dubbo Regional Council has developed a Wellington Town Centre Plan. The idea was raised by councillor Greg Mohr and as part of the process the public was encouraged to provide input on what was needed.
Wellington resident Marie Hoffman was one of the people who made a submission to council. She also raised her concerns at the recent council meeting.
One of Ms Hoffman's main concerns is the lack of public toilets at Cameron Park.
While the toilets are clean and modern, Ms Hoffman said "one ladies toilet, one gentlemen's toilet and one disabled toilet, which appears to be locked most of the time" were not enough.

She also called for more parking in the vicinity for buses and caravans.
"This is inadequate for buses to stop for a comfort stop, part with the playground so near to share the use [of the toilets]. Parents and children and sometimes elderly people sometimes cannot wait to go to the toilet and the lack of the number of suitable cubicles creates problems for them," Ms Hoffman said.
In response to the submissions, council said the Cameron Park toilet block was installed in accordance with the park's masterplan from 2017.
Cr Mohr said one of the "disappointments" of the public exhibition period was the number of comments on derelict buildings in the main street.
"Everyone says this is one of Wellington's bad points," he said.
"We're hoping that the people who own these properties come on board and at least give them a lick of paint or make them some sort of attractive so people who potentially want to start a business in Wellington can have some sort of ease that the building they're looking for is kept in some sort of order."
Now it's been endorsed by council, the Wellington Town Centre Plan will help shape the future direction of the town.
It outlines different steps for council to take in the short, medium and long term to improve the area.
The actions include investigating land zoning for the town centre to encourage large retailers, preparing a parking analysis, developing a community centre, more CCTV cameras and looking at the vehicle access to the supermarket car park.
