Maitland Administration Centre
Maitland is a rapidly growing community and to keep up with this growth, Maitland City Council also continues to grow. As such, Council has outgrown its main Administration Building and staff are spread across a range of sites which are now also reaching, or at, capacity. As a response to this Council is developing a fit for purpose Maitland Administration Centre to meet the needs of our growing city. The Centre will be constructed on the eastern side of the Maitland Town Hall and run through to Devonshire Street in the east.
The Maitland Administration Centre development will link to Town Hall across the ground and first floors, providing better accessibility to the Council Chamber and connectivity to upgraded facilities in Town Hall for the community. This includes proposed improvements to change rooms, kitchen facilities and a new stage loading dock, allowing the Town Hall to continue to operate as a true multipurpose regional entertainment venue capable of a wide range of activities.
The new Maitland Administration building is estimated to be delivered at a cost of $28m, with associated ground works, upgrades to Town Hall and parking and site landscaping improvements bringing the total project cost to an estimated $43m, to be funded via loan borrowings. Completion is expected by the end of 2021.
Car parking including dedicated on-site parking for Council visitors will be located at ground level towards the rear of the site accessed from Devonshire and Grant Streets.
The development application for this project is currently on Public Exhibition and can be viewed here.
As the project progresses Council will provide ongoing, accurate and timely updates to the community.
