This report investigates the application and impact of the Te Aranga Design Principles within the context of the Tāmaki Regeneration Project.

The Te Aranga Design Principles, rooted in Māori cultural values, aim to ensure mana whenua presence and participation in urban design and planning, addressing economic, social, environmental, and spatial development. The Tāmaki area, undergoing significant regeneration, presents a unique opportunity to integrate these principles in enhancing community cohesion, Māori place attachment, and identity. Paul’s study critically examines the ways in which these principles are implemented in policy and design, focusing on residential development in Tāmaki, which includes Glen Innes, Point England, Waiotaiki Bay, and Panmure. The research highlights the collaboration between Auckland Council, local iwi such as Ngāti Paoa, Ngāi Tai, and Ngāti Whatua, and the Tāmaki Regeneration Company (TRC) in embedding Māori cultural considerations into the urban landscape. By exploring procurement processes and the practical application of the Te Aranga Design Principles, Paul suggests frameworks for integrating Māori values into urban regeneration efforts. This study not only contributes to academic discourse on culturally sensitive urban design but also provides practical insights for policymakers, urban planners, and community stakeholders involved in urban regeneration projects in Aotearoa New Zealand.
