The plans guiding regeneration

The plans guiding regeneration - City Centre

Given Tāmaki Makaurau / Auckland city centre’s importance to both the region and the country as a whole, its regeneration is guided by several strategic plans.

These plans include:

With the futures of the city centre and waterfront interwoven in places, the City Centre Masterplan and the Waterfront Plan are companion documents.

The various plans also line up with and complement private sector investment, particularly in the waterfront and Britomart areas, and significant public transport projects such as the City Rail Link.

The region’s planning blueprint, the Auckland Unitary Plan, applies zoning that seeks to ensure the city centre is an international centre for business and learning, innovation, entertainment, culture and urban living. It also recognises the area’s important historic heritage, and we’re taking this into account during regeneration.
