Developing our Economy
Our economy is thriving. We embrace an innovative and diversified mix of businesses and have access to local jobs, shopping and produce. Maitland is well known as a great place to live, work, visit and invest. Central Maitland is the vibrant heart of our city.
Maitland is embarking on an urban renewal pilot project called Create Maitland to activate vacant properties in key commercial sites by offering short term tenures for creatives. Council is now an affiliate member of Renew Australia. Read our FAQ's to find out more about this initiative.
For a pilot project to occur formal commitment is needed from property owners to provide access to a suitable and available property. To achieve this, a prospectus of interested creatives and makers looking for a space and details of their offering has been compiled.

Economic Development Strategy
Council, together with a broad range of stakeholders, will prepare an Economic Development Strategy for Maitland. Objectives will be focused on building a prosperous and vibrant city with a thriving local economy.
Responsibility for achieving these outcomes will sit with a range of agencies, from Council and government organisations through to the local business community.
Over the coming months we will be engaging with the local business community through a survey. If you own or operate a business in Maitland, this will be your opportunity to tell us your issues and ideas to help us work towards the continued growth of a prosperous and vibrant city.
