This week at Maitland council: November 13
Maitland City Council will meet again tomorrow night. On the agenda:
- New Morpeth café
Redevelopment plans for the Bronte Guest House have been submitted to Council, seeking to convert the bottom floor to a café with an outdoor dining area. The application also seeks for a double garage to be demolished and a two storey building to be constructed in its place. The building would contain two guest suites and garaging for five vehicles.
- Road closure in Chisholm
Council will look to close small portions of Bay Leaf Road and Settlers Boulevard in Chisholm, as they are no longer required for future road construction. Both portions of road were to be used to extend the subdivision, however changes to the subdivision’s layout mean they not needed anymore. After the closure, the roads would be classified as operational land and transferred to the developer.
- CBD car park review
Following a question from Councillor Philip Penfold, council officers have advised that a working party has been formed to prepare a brief and review a study into car parking in Maitland’s CBD. The study will include a review of the city’s parking strategy and consideration of multi-storey car park options. Consultants have been engaged to undertake the study, with a view for completion by July next year.
Maitland City Council meets on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month. Meetings begin at 5:30pm and are open to the public. They are also live streamed through maitland.nsw.gov.au.
