The plan for regeneration

The plan for regeneration - Avondale

Avondale has an overall plan for how it will be regenerated over the coming years. This award-winning document is called the High Level Project Plan, and it provides the Auckland Council mandate for us to make change.

Eke Panuku's Priority Location Director (West) John Carter, formerly a strategic planner for Eke Panuku, wrote the plan for the area and was recognised by the New Zealand Planning Institute at its 2018 awards ceremony, winning Best Practice Award: District/Strategic Planning and Guidance.

In the High Level Project Plan we pinpoint key actions that need to be taken, including making better use of properties that the council owns.

The plan also covers:

  • The prime sites on which development will take place.
  • The strategic moves and proposed projects that will unlock development opportunities.
  • The reasons behind Avondale’s growth potential, and the benefits we anticipate for people who live, work, play or visit.
  • The main players and their roles, and how we’ll work together and with Avondale communities.

Auckland Council’s Planning Committee approved this plan on 7 November 2017. The plan follows the foundation work of many previous and current council and local board plans. It is enabled by the Auckland Unitary Plan’s drive for a higher-quality and more compact city, and its outcomes support those of the Auckland Plan 2050.
