Regeneration Programme


Over the next 20 years, many new neighbourhoods will be regenerated in Tāmaki, each bringing new homes, parks and playgrounds, upgraded infrastructure, education and jobs. Some of the neighbourhoods that are closest to completion are below. Take a look around to learn more.

The Line Epping Neighbourhood, Glen Innes Central

The Line Epping area of Glen Innes will be a neighbourhood of complementary contrast. Green, yet urban. Just minutes’ walk from a vibrant town centre, but woven through with plentiful natural spaces. One hundred and twenty-two modern, beautiful new homes are coming to the area, including state homes, homes for sale on the open market, and secure, long-term rental homes. With them comes big improvements to infrastructure, parks, and the natural environment. Tree-lined streets and boardwalks running alongside restored waterways will provide a green route into town via an upgraded Taniwha Reserve.

The Derna Tobruk Neighbourhood, Panmure North

Over one hundred high-quality homes will be built in the Derna Tobruk neighbourhood by mid-2022, including 66 homes for sale on the open market, seven affordable homes reserved for those with a connection to Tāmaki, and 31 state homes. As at December 2021, half of the houses are already completed and a connected, thriving community is taking shape. Derna Tobruk’s streets and underground infrastructure are being upgraded, and its green spaces are being restored and renovated to provide plenty of space to play.

The West Tāmaki Neighbourhood, Glen Innes Northwest

Eighteen high-quality apartments are being built by Nuline Homes in West Tāmaki (91-93 West Tāmaki Road), especially for key workers in Tāmaki to rent at a more affordable rate through Tāmaki Regeneration Company. Residents will be offered long-term tenancies, with the flexibility to end it if their situation changes, bringing them more security, stability and predictable housing costs. Construction is estimated to be completed in September 2022.

The Hīnaki Neighbourhood, Panmure North

Right at the heart of everything that’s good about Tāmaki, the Hīnaki neighbourhood is situated four minutes’ drive from Panmure Town Centre, and three minutes’ drive from Glen Innes Town Centre. It borders Ruapotaka School and is just a 12 minute off-road stroll along the soon-to-be-upgraded Boundary Reserve to the Tāmaki Estuary. Our builder partners NZ Living, Jalcon, Housing Foundation and Generation Homes are building over 300 new public housing homes, affordable homes for sale, secure affordable rental homes, and homes for sale on the open market in Hīnaki, including accessible homes.

The Overlea Neighbourhood, Glen Innes Northeast

Construction in the Overlea neighbourhood in Glen Innes Northeast, is currently underway. This well-connected part of Glen Innes runs alongside Leybourne Circle, which is set to become a pedestrian-first, green, ‘liveable street’ where local kids can safely walk to and from the four schools nearby. The reserve and stream running through Leybourne Circle all the way from Sacred Heart College to Tāmaki College and the Tāmaki Recreation Centre will be home to upgraded parks, playgrounds and natural spaces. Around 170 new, high quality homes are being built in Overlea, and nearly half of them have already welcomed their new occupants.


Large scale regeneration programmes are complex and take time, but the benefits can be life changing. We’re guided by our vision for Tāmaki as a place where everyone can flourish in an inclusive, affordable and vibrant community. There are four key priorities for the Tāmaki regeneration programme: Social (supporting Tāmaki whānau to thrive), Economic (helping the local economy to thrive), Placemaking (supporting local cultural identity and sense of belonging) and Housing (building homes and communities). Read more below.


We’re committed to supporting Tāmaki locals to gain knowledge and skills for a brighter future. We work with our partners to provide whānau with education and employment opportunities through the Tāmaki Jobs & Skills Hub, which has supported over 850 people into jobs. We offer a wide range of affordable housing options for Tāmaki whānau, along with financial knowledge and tools to help achieve their housing goals. We work with partners on social initiatives, and projects in the pipeline include an early childhood education centre and a kidney care centre.


Economic development is an integral part of what we are working to achieve for Tāmaki. We aim to strengthen the local economy and maximise the potential of Tāmaki for all who live and work here. Together with our partners, including local and central government, we will be developing vibrant town centres and commercial precincts, while maintaining the special character of Tāmaki. We’re improving transport and infrastructure and encouraging investment for an even brighter future.


Celebrating and building on Tāmaki’s strong community identity, particularly Māori and Pasifika, is important for our community to see their future here. We create opportunities for community participation in shaping Tāmaki into an awesome place to live. Some of our community work includes street dinners for neighbours to get to know each other, supporting community groups to celebrate cultural events such as Matariki and Lunar New Year, working with residents to trial new street activations, and creating community focal points where people meet and children play, such as the new playground on Aveline Place in Glen Innes. We’re creating friendly, welcoming neighbourhoods and making sure that our developments enhance the stunning natural environment of Tāmaki.


Our mix of 10,500 private market, affordable and state housing will increase housing affordability, accessibility and choice over the next 20 years. 3500 private market homes of varying typologies will be sold directly by our developers. 3500 affordable homes will include Kiwibuild, as well as Tāmaki Regeneration Co.’s own housing products - shared home ownership and soon to be released long-term rentals. 3500 new state houses will accommodate new and existing tenants. Our Tāmaki Housing Association team delivers a tenancy service that places the wellbeing of our whānau at the heart of all that we do. Our team helps move whānau into one of our healthier new homes through our Tāmaki commitment, “Every Tāmaki local who wishes to stay in Tāmaki, will have the opportunity to do so.”

The Tāmaki masterplan

Tāmaki Regeneration Company has a master plan for a brighter future for Tāmaki, which is guiding our regeneration programme. The Tāmaki regeneration programme is opening doors to home ownership, creating training, employment and business opportunities for the community, and enhancing wellbeing in Tāmaki, especially for Māori and Pasifika whānau. Together we are creating a place for everyone, where new possibilities can flourish.
