Abstract – Tuhinga Whakarāpopoto
This report investigates the effectiveness of the Tāmaki Regeneration Company (TRC) project. Glen Innes was built in the 1950s, close to central Auckland, and was a primarily low socio-economic suburb, with a significant Māori population, living in State (social) housing. The TRC project saw Housing New Zealand Corporation and Auckland Council working together to replace 2,700 properties. The aim was to increase density by three times. However, during the development tenants were displaced and replaced. The TRC initiated an extensive programme of collaboration, including with a community trust to address the resulting stress for families.
