Maitland Recreation and Open Space Strategy

The Maitland Recreation and Open Space Strategy (MROSSR, 2004) seeks to provide a clear vision and direction regarding the purpose, level of provision, development priorities and management of recreational open space areas in the Maitland local government area (LGA).

The recommendations in this report provide strategic direction regarding priority actions to achieve the vision over the next 5-10 years. The recommendations are based on a combination of community consultation, a survey distributed to all households and the Maitland LGA, review of national data and experience.
