Development Update

15 DEC, 2019 | Tāmaki News

TRC takes a neighbourhood-by-neighbourhood approach to understand the specific needs, opportunities and challenges of each area and the families who live there. Development work is well underway in Glen Innes, with early construction activities also starting in Pt England and Northern Panmure.

We understand construction works can be very disruptive. We are committed to working with the local community and will make sure residents are informed about what’s happening at each stage of the programme. Visit the neighbourhoods and developments page for more information at:

Fenchurch neighbourhood A
Over 400 new homes will be built in the Fenchurch neighbourhood, including a mix of state, affordable and private market housing. More than 200 houses, including over 80 state homes have been completed so far. The park on Aveline Place has also been completed, with the naming process underway. Current projects include the Fenchurch Park development, bordered by Fenchurch Street,

Leybourne Circle and Sunnymead Road. TRC has partnered with RAWA and GJ Gardner to redevelop this area, which includes approximately 150 houses, with over 50 houses still to be completed. RAWA and GJ Gardner are also the development partners for the area south of Taniwha Street, around Kestrel Place and Kiano Place. This redevelopment will include approximately 70 homes, ranging from 2-5 bedrooms in size.
The NZ Housing Foundation (NZHF) completed 30 new homes in Fenchurch recently, with another 40 to come in the next few years. The Foundation is focusing its building efforts around Sunnymead
Road, Taniwha Street and Mansfield Street.
An existing walkway is being upgraded into a linear park called Wākāinga Walk, between Sunnymead Road and Taniwha Street. This park is designed to provide safe passage for pedestrians. House construction is also continuing on the eastern side of Tāmaki College through Classic Builders, where a total of 20 homes are being completed.

Overlea neighbourhood B
Over 130 new homes will be built in the Overlea neighbourhood. Nine houses have been completed in Overlea Central to date. An updated plan for Overlea Central is being developed.
Overlea South will boast about 50 new homes, including 16 state houses. The Overlea North development is currently being redesigned.

Line-Epping neighbourhood D
The Line/Epping neighbourhood development includes a mixture of state, affordable and private market homes in a variety of styles. Civil works are complete, with house construction likely to begin in early 2020.
The extension of Eastview Rd will link the Line-Epping Neighbourhood with Glen Innes town centre. Auckland Council is also working to upgrade Boundary Reserve.

Northern Glen Innes neighbourhood F
Development partner Creating Communities is building an enclave of ten two and three-bedroom, architect-designed houses on Castledine Crescent in Northern Glen Innes.
Five of the homes are connected by a series of walkways and boardwalks set in a landscaped native bush setting. Go to https://creatingcommunities. for more information.\

Wai-O-Taiki Bay neighbourhood G
Creating Communities have recently completed several homes in Wai-O-Taiki Bay on Fernwood, Inglewood and Taniwha Streets.
