Activity Centres and Employment Clusters Strategy

The Activity Centres and Employment Clusters Strategy was adapted by Council in 2010 as a critical building block in achieving Council's vision to create a vibrant, sustainable community for the residents, workers and visitors of Maitland.

The purpose of the strategy is to provide Council's strategic framework for the growth of all activity centres and employment clusters in Maitland by:

  • providing a logical hierarchy and network of activity centres and employment clusters which supports the growth of the local economy and employment in Maitland for the next 20 years
  • guiding future land use and development decisions which reflect the vision and principles of the strategy
  • ensuring that future reviews of this strategy and future policies relating to activity centres and employment clusters are flexible and able to respond to the changing economic and social circumstances.
