KEY GROWTH AREAS
Regional Markets are now consistently outperforming the combined capitals. Our focus is on the regional markets that offer good employment, infrastructure, accessibility, lifestyle and rental demand. Two very strong areas are below.
CENTRAL COAST NSW
The Central Coast is the third largest urban area in New South Wales after Sydney and Newcastle and designated as an important growth centre under the NSW Development Strategy.
Major infrastructure investment like North Connex, M1 motorway upgrade, a new purpose-built train maintenance facility at Kangy Angy, confirms the Government confidence in the continued growth of the region.
The Central Coast is an active lifestyle region with access to white sandy beaches, picturesque lakes and waterways, natural bushland, golf courses, cafés, regional galleries and shopping centres.
Population growth in the Central Coast is forecast to increase by 65,000 in the next 15 years.
With easy access to Newcastle and Sydney, Government departments as well as many local, national and international companies are utilising the Central Coast as their new work location.
The region enjoys continued strength and growth in education, health, transport, construction and retail industries, bringing employees with housing needs.
MAITLAND AND THE HUNTER VALLEY
Located on the banks of the Hunter River, Maitland is about 35 minutes to Newcastle Airport, and less than 15 minutes from the M1 Pacific Motorway, the M15 Hunter Expressway, or the Newcastle Link Road.
Maitland's continued growth is supported by the massive investment in the Newcastle economy. Newcastle is a key regional centre for NSW, with upgrades to the CBD, transport infrastructure, Newcastle Airport International status and Cruise ship terminal revitalisation.
Maitland has its own infrastructure revitalisation projects including the Stockland Green Hills shopping centre expansion to the tune of $412mil, and the new Maitland Hospital Precinct at Metford.
Maitland is an area with something for the whole family to enjoy, whether it be sampling the delicious food, or discovering the natural beauty of the Hunter River. You can explore Central Maitland by foot to discover art & culture, or to venture slightly further afield for the best farm fresh produce, historic townships and vibrant activities the city has to offer.
The population of Maitland is estimated to increase by more than 25,000 people in the next 20 years to 104,700.
Maitland is the focus of a diversity of economic activities including agriculture, tourism, mining, manufacturing, transport, and construction industries.
Maitland has an excellent standard of health services, schools, residential housing, and retail shopping centres. It is a safe and healthy city, with a quality lifestyle, a vibrant and sustainable future, and a proud and involved community.
