The fastest growing regional area in NSW is Maitland

Another year, Maitland has been named the fastest-growing regional area in NSW for 2022/23.

Maitland City Council granted over 1,180 development applications (DAs) during the financial year, which resulted in 1,147 new housing lots.

It took an average of 27 days for DAs to be approved – one of the fastest in NSW.

More than 880 land plots were also released as a result of more than $85 million in subdivision work by developers.

The project currently includes 800 lots under construction, 1,100 lots being prepared for construction, and 2,500 lots seeking DA approval.

Jeff Smith, general manager of Maitland City Council, says these figures and the pipeline of future projects demonstrate the city’s confidence in its economic future.

We continue to grow at the fastest rate in the state, which indicates that investors and homeowners recognize Maitland’s potential as a great place to live.

With great development outcomes, we strive to maintain the balance between progress and preserving the character of our city.

Through our Capital Works Program, we invest significantly in local infrastructure to support forecasted growth.”

The Maitland 2023/24 Works Program includes $19.7 million for major roadworks, $9 million for road rehabilitation and resurfacing, and $11.4 million and $29 million for building and recreation projects.

There are several major infrastructure projects in the pipeline for the community, including:

  • $26 million Raymond Terrace Road project to reduce traffic congestion.
  • Completion of upgrades to Harold Gregson Park at Maitland Regional Sports Complex.
  • Road and intersection upgrades throughout the Thornton road network.
  • New community centres in Tenambit and Chisholm.
  • New sports grounds in Chisholm and Lochinvar.
  • New skatepark and place space at Roy Jordan Oval in Gillieston Heights.
