Major projects coming in 2021/22
‘What about the major projects?’ We hear you ask, well here’s some of the big stuﬀ contributing to over $250m in infrastructure that we’re continuing to deliver this ﬁnancial year.
Maitland Regional Sports Complex - Stage Three
Following on from the completion of the Regional Athletics Centre last year, Stage 3 of the overall development is set to begin. The works include new lighting, a LED scoreboard, additional spectator seating and amenities, car parking, an exercise circuit and station, a playground, water harvesting and storage plant and ﬁeld expansion works which will support multiple sporting codes.
Waste Transfer Station
The Waste Management Centre at Mt Vincent Road East Maitland will be upgraded to increase resource recovery and recycling, with the ﬁrst stage of works starting early next year. The upgrade will assist us in diverting waste from landﬁll and achieving state and federal waste and resource recovery targets.
Maitland Administration Centre
This is a new, contemporary centre for the City that’s required as we’ve outgrown our current administration building and have staﬀ spread across a number of sites, which are also now at capacity. The Centre will accommodate up to 360 staﬀ with room for growth over the next 20 years and will link to the Town Hall across
the ground and ﬁrst ﬂoors, providing better accessibility to the Council Chamber and connectivity to upgraded facilities in the Town Hall for the community. Town Hall upgrades will include improvements like enhanced change rooms and kitchen facilities, resulting in the building continuing to operate as a true multipurpose regional entertainment venue. An estimated 51 jobs will be created from the construction, with a further 148 to come as funds cycle through the local economy.
