Information on sporting ground closures in Maitland.
All user groups are to undertake and submit a wet weather assessment on Friday, Saturday and Sunday if there has been inclement weather. Refer to process below.
The Wet Weather Ground Closure procedure has been developed to assist with determining when grounds are opened or closed.
Council will control ground closures from Monday through to 2.00pm Fridays. Notification of ground closures during this time will be through email to user groups and on this webpage.
Use of sports grounds from 2.00pm Friday until 8.30am Monday will be allowed at the discretion of the User Group that has been allocated use of the ground at that time. All User Groups must undertake a wet weather assessment and complete a wet weather ground assessment form whenever there is surface water or ground softness present on the sportsground or there has been a recent rainfall event. The completed document must be forwarded to the Recreation Planning and Development Officer by 5.00pm the following Monday. Please email to firstname.lastname@example.org with 'Wet Weather Assessment' as the subject line or delivered to Council’s Administration Building at 285 - 287 High Street, Maitland.
