NORTHCOTE TOWN CENTRE BENCHMARK MASTERPLAN

Released in April 2019, the Northcote Town Centre Benchmark Masterplan was developed in collaboration with Kaipātiki Local Board and mana whenua, and is based on more than a decade of legacy planning and community input.

It outlines Eke Panuku’s plan for the town centre renewal. It shows how the renewed town centre will offer all the things that locals need including eateries, shops and public spaces while retaining a distinctly Northcote flavour.

The benchmark masterplan builds on previous plans for Northcote, including:

NORTHCOTE FRAMEWORK PLAN

Released in 2016, the Northcote Framework Plan shapes the scope of the project and develops high-level concepts into robust proposals for achieving regeneration.

The framework plan was developed by Eke Panuku in collaboration with Kāinga Ora (formerly HLC), the Auckland Council family, Kaipātiki Local Board, mana whenua and local community groups.

HIGH LEVEL PROJECT PLAN

The High Level Project Plan was adopted by the Mayor and councillors in 2016, and provides Eke Panuku with the Auckland Council mandate to make change in Northcote. In this document we highlight key actions that need to be taken, including making better use of properties the council owns.
