​Ōrākei retail reports

Auckland Council and the Ōrākei Local Board commissioned two reports on successful retail practice in town centres.

The work is focused on the Ōrākei Local Board area. However, many of the lessons can also be applied to other centres across the Auckland region.

Successful town centres

​Successful main street retailing

Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) need to make their town centres not only attractive places, but commercially successful places.

They need to compete effectively, with other town centres and with other retail formats such as shopping malls.

This report provides some useful suggestions and tools to main street retailers to help them succeed in creating loyal customers - ways to attract them, get them to buy, and to come back.

​Tāmaki Drive Masterplan

This masterplan represents a significant collective effort that shows the depth of feeling and pride that many people, both residents and visitors, have for this jewel of Auckland.

​Tāmaki Drive Precinct Event Guidelines

These guidelines will help you with planning public events within the Tāmaki Drive Precinct.

​Impact of events on town centres report

This report details the impact events have on identified town centres, including: Ellerslie, Remuera, Mission Bay and St Heliers.

​Waiatarua Reserve Enhancement Plan

This plan lays out how environmental and recreational improvements can be made to this unique wetland area and area of open space in the Ōrākei Local Board area that will:

  • remain consistent with existing themes of the reserve
  • protect the natural properties of the site
  • avoid it being cluttered with ad-hoc developments.
