Welcome to the Summer edition of Mai Tāmaki
Staying connected with the community is a really important part of making the regeneration programme in Tāmaki a success.
That’s why Tāmaki Regeneration (TRC) continually works with a variety of groups, including schools, churches, marae and other local organisations.
Learning from the community and creating long-term partnerships with those who have been here longer than us means regeneration works for existing and future residents.
We also encourage our commercial partners to get involved in the Tāmaki Contribution - an initiative which provides them the chance to give back to the community. There are many ways for TRC’s commercial partners to do this, including offering local people employment opportunities, apprenticeships, training and mentoring or helping out with donations to local organisations.
It was great to get down to Tāmaki Primary recently along with others from the TRC team and put together bikes funded by development partner Mike Greer Homes’ Tāmaki Contribution.
The students weren’t shy about showing off their awesome riding skills, which they’ll be able to use with their families in the future as we develop the Tāmaki Loop – a 10km track that will connect Panmure and Glen Innes. The loop is one part of the wider vision for how people will live, play and grow in Tāmaki long after the development is finished.
While we’re looking ahead at what’s to come, it’s also important to acknowledge those who made huge contributions to Glen Innes, Panmure and Pt England in the past. That’s why we’re giving replica street signs to those families of Tāmaki locals who’ve had new streets in our developments named after them. You might be surprised where some of the signs have ended up!
