Te Papa next steps

Te Papa peninsula plan

In late November, we hosted a four-day workshop with a range of stakeholders and outputs included a series of short, medium and long-term spatial planning options.

Representatives from Mana whenua, Kāinga Ora, NZ Transport Agency, Ministry of Housing and Urban Development, Bay of Plenty Regional Council and Tauranga City Council, as well as other professionals covering a range of technical disciplines were involved and contributed towards the workshop outcomes.

The workshop is another element that helps us shape our plan to respond to ongoing growth with greater housing options, supported by more sustainable movement choices, local amenities and infrastructure.

We are now working on some concepts and ideas for the Te Papa plan and we will be seeking feedback from the community in early to mid-2020 on proposed options for how we support future growth in the Te Papa peninsula.

Te Papa plan changes

We are continuing our work on the proposed changes to the city plan, running parallel to the Te Papa project. Part of the proposed plan changes is about implementing the Te Papa spatial framework by enabling increased density, such as apartment buildings and terraced housing, in specific locations across the peninsula.

The plan changes are also looking to enable people to build more varied types of housing like duplexes and terraced housing across the rest of the city, through changes to the suburban residential zone provisions.

Engagement with the community on the proposed plan changes is progressing initially through the Te Papa project. Further engagement and a formal submission/notification process on the plan changes themselves will take place in 2020.
