Urban Te Papa – The Evolution Opportunity of Tauranga CBD

Great cities have vibrant city centres – how can we create a vibrant, safe and successful city for people to live, work, play and learn?

New Zealand’s urban centres are facing unprecedented pressure from strong population growth, changing preferences, and aging population. Tauranga is a prime example of this, having grown from a small costal town into New Zealand’s 5th largest city in the last half century. Despite its growth, Tauranga is one of New Zealand’s smallest local authorities in terms of land area which reinforces the need to use the land and resources available to us carefully.

Great cities have vibrant city centres – how can we create a vibrant, safe and successful city for people to live, work, play and learn? And how can we recognise the importance of environmental, cultural and heritage values in urban development?

Join the NZ Institute of Architects and our partners as we explore urban growth strategies and placemaking in our Urban Te Papa with an urban designer, architect, Tauranga City Council, iwi and economic development specialist.
