The Takapuna Centre Plan

What the Takapuna Centre Plan does

The Devonport-Takapuna Local Board has developed the Takapuna Centre Plan, a guide for the next 30 years for the development of one of Auckland's key metropolitan centres.

The plan reaffirms the Takapuna Strategic Framework 2010 and focuses attention on projects that will help transform Takapuna into a people-friendly and well connected centre.

We want Takapuna to become a vibrant town centre, oriented around people.

The plan emphasises making the most of the centre's spectacular location between Takapuna Beach, Lake Pupuke and Shoal Bay inlet, and allowing for high quality growth and development to improve the centre in the long-term.

Three key projects

The plan focuses on three key projects for Takapuna's commercial heart.

These projects target currently under-performing spaces:

  • the Anzac Quarter
  • the beachfront
  • the streets.

Factors that will influence these projects promote the values identified by the community and help to achieve the outcomes of the Auckland Plan.

​Progress of Takapuna Centre Plan

Since the Takapuna Centre Plan was adopted in 2014 significant progress has been made on:

  • the Hurstmere Road upgrade
  • beachfront reserve improvements
  • the public car parking development at 14 Huron Street (former Gasometer site).

The board is still working on a number of other actions such as:

  • redevelopment of 40 Anzac Street (existing car park site)
  • improving connection of the town centre with the beachfront
  • amenity and safety upgrades of intersections and streets in and around the centre.
