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.

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.
