To achieve the outcomes and implement the associated actions that are essential to support our growing city, we have identified ideas that will help us along this journey.
Ideas are potential projects, processes and other initiatives and are made up of:
- Te Papa-wide ideas that contribute to liveable and healthy neighbourhoods
- Te Papa-wide ideas that help shape the way we move around and contribute to connected neighbourhoods
- Neighbourhood ideas for Greerton, Merivale, Gate Pa, and the city centre
Council is already working on improving areas in Te Papa and have for example started to advance our public transport, walking and cycleways. However, the ideas outlined here, and those that you add, will assist in decision-making on what we do and when we do it over the next 30 years. Remember, change will not happen overnight, change happens gradually over time. Allowing us to plan for and support it as it occurs will ensure we achieve desired outcomes and associated benefits for our communities.
Between 7 April and 19 May we asked for the community and stakeholders for their feedback the proposed ideas, potential projects and initiatives to support growth in the Te Papa peninsula. We collated and analysed the feedback received to inform the prioritisation of ideas for the final Te Papa Spatial Plan.

Te Papa ideas
We want to support our community to achieve the best possible outcomes and opportunities as a result of growth. There are fundamental actions that need to take place to create unique, liveable, connected and healthy neighbourhoods. The proposed ideas further expand on these and enable us to start prioritising what we do and when. As we work through the process of developing the Te Papa Plan, we will provide further information on potential cost, timing, responsibility, process and locational considerations.
Ideas for healthy and liveable neighbourhoods in Te Papa
We’ve developed a range of ideas that support us in creating liveable and healthy neighbourhoods in Te Papa. We’re now working on a plan that determines which ideas should be implemented now, in the near future or in the longer term.
