Maitland Social Plan

The Maitland Social Plan 2009-2019 was endorsed by Council on 13th July 2010.

The Plan was the result of extensive research and community consultation in partnership with other agencies, organisations and the community.

The Plan has been based on social justice and social inclusion principles and in line with the Local Government (General) Regulation Amendment (Community and Social Plans) Regulation 2005 and Social /Community Planning Guidelines 2002 requiring the needs of seven mandatory population target groups to be addressed.

These groups are:

  • Children 0 – 11 years old
  • Young people 12- 25 years old
  • Older persons over 55 years old
  • People with a disability
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people
  • People from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds
  • Women

To support the Social Plan, Discussion Papers have been developed.
These can be viewed by clicking on the links below.

The Community Profile and Community Directory also support the Social Plan findings and can be accessed on Council’s website.
