Projects in Tāmaki
The regeneration plan for Tāmaki covers 25 years . Residents will notice improvements after five years and enjoy good progress by the 10-year mark.
Three suburbs make up the project area – Glen Innes, Pt England and Panmure. Mana whenua iwi Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei , Ngati Paoa and Ngāi Tai ki Tāmaki have significant connections to the Tāmaki boundaries along with nine other iwi or hapu groups.
House building is underway, with 550 new homes expected to be completed by the end of 2020. The regeneration of greater Tāmaki will also include improved facilities and infrastructure .
To help speed up redevelopment in Tāmaki, the Government transferred the ownership and management of about 2800 Housing New Zealand properties in Glen Innes, Pt England and Panmure to the Tāmaki Redevelopment Company (TRC) on 1 April 2016.
Auckland Transport is carrying out roading and public transport improvements in Tāmaki. These include the Auckland Manukau Eastern Transport Initiative (AMETI), Glen Innes to Tāmaki shared path and cycle improvements for Glen Innes.

- Renovation of Fenchurch neighbourhood’s old scout hall into Te Whare Piringa – Our Place. This community hub will be managed by residents (TRC partnered with the Department of Conservation)
