Central Maitland Structure Plan

The Central Maitland Structure Plan sets out an ambitious vision, supported by key strategies to guide growth and development over the next 20 years. The vision for Central Maitland builds on the City's existing strengths and aims to create a vibrant place and reinforce its role as a Major Regional Centre. This plan recognises that Maitland lies at the centre of the major growth corridor of the Hunter Valley. The city is sited at a junction in the rail network, close to the Hunter Expressway and close to Newcastle Airport. The structure plan considers the following issues vital to the revitilisation of Central Maitland:

  • Residential growth
  • Employment growth
  • Improvements to the public domain
  • Better connection to the Hunter River
