Cr Nicole Penfold

Councillor Nicole Penfold was born and bred in Maitland, and is in her second term as a Maitland City councillor.

Nicole is grateful for the fortunate lifestyle she’s been able to live in Maitland and cites this gratitude as one of the reasons she decided to first run for Council in 2012.

A working wife and mother of two, Nicole has brought a different perspective to Council and she’s worked to achieve fair and balanced decision making.

‘We are moving into a period of change and growth so it’s important all in our community are represented. My family face the same challenges many other Maitland families face, and I hope to ensure our planning reflects the needs of everyone in the community’.

Nicole is enthusiastic about seeing the change occur in Central Maitland over the next three years and she’d like to see the inner city continue to develop into a restaurant hub and a drawcard for tourism.

Out of the chambers, Nicole works in the insurance industry and holds a Diploma of Financial Services. In her spare time Nicole loves spending time with her husband Philip, stepson William and son Matthew. She also enjoys catching up with friends and attending local events and shows.
