Maitland is a dynamic and growing city offering green field industrial land, commercial investment and tourism opportunities, conveniently situated at the junction of major transport routes in the lower Hunter. With an increasing number of Sydney and International companies moving to the Maitland district, the appeal of this region continues to grow rapidly. Council is committed to the development of sites suitable to these businesses, and has worked hard to establish a number of highly attractive industrial estates open to the developer and potential investor.
There are varied sizes of quality industrial and light industrial land available in the Maitland area, with two main estates offering both design and construct development opportunities, and sites with established facilities. Both of these estates provide an excellent opportunity for a diverse range of industries to carry out their business in Maitland's unique lifestyle environment.
Council encourages employment generating industry to relocate to Maitland with incentive packages. Council is particularly interested in export orientated or import replacing companies in the area. Centrally located to the Hunter Valley's mining, wine and agriculture industries, Maitland is a logical choice for value added manufacturing such as mining support and food processing companies. Several such companies have consolidated their Australia wide operations at one Maitland location.
Maitland boasts an array of affordable housing and land options to cater for those wishing to invest in a growth property market. With the prices of housing and land in Sydney reaching unattainable levels, Maitland on the other hand offers the investor a wide selection of realistically priced homes and land.
