Maitland has embarked on an urban renewal pilot project called Create Maitland.
Create Maitland aims to activate vacant commercial properties by placing attractive, engaging, new, creative businesses and community initiatives into empty spaces. The idea was first investigated in 2017 before a prospectus was sent out to local building owners last year. Council since received interest from the property owner of 344 High Street, Maitland and the local creatives are now settling in. This has sparked growing interest in the project which is fast gaining momentum.
Council encourages more property owners to provide access to a suitable and available property. We also invite expressions of interest from local creatives and makers looking for a space in order to update our Create Maitland Prospectus.
If you're an interested property owner or creative and you want to find out more, please contact Council's Business Liaison Officer Nicole Dickson by calling 0429 621 918 or emailing email@example.com.
Council is an affiliate member of Renew Australia.
