Glen Innes Town Centre Revitalisation
Planning is underway to revitalise Glen Innes town centre and make it more attractive and accessible for all. The aim is to create a hub which works for the existing and future communities of Tāmaki. Existing businesses have a loyal customer base and a diverse range of retail shops as well as cafes and restaurants will attract more people into the area.
TRC is leading the town centre regeneration in partnership with Auckland Transport, Panuku, the Maungakieke-Tāmaki Local Board and the Glen Innes Business Association.
Auckland Transport has plans to connect the train station to the town centre at Mayfair Place via an overbridge. In Mayfair Place, there are plans to include an improved open space where people can sit and relax, eat their lunch and stay for a while.
Another big project involves upgrading the public space around the Glen Innes Library and Te Oro Music and Arts Centre to create better links from there to Maybury Reserve, making the reserve easy to get to.
