Huatoki Corridor Masterplan

By embracing the natural asset and leveraging off spaces adjacent to it, the path of the Huatoki can act as a catalyst for vibrant and active spaces in the heart of Ngāmotu New Plymouth. The Huatoki corridor will provide for high quality and diverse experiences through the city centre, with a continuous sequence of public spaces from the coast to Vivian Street, extending further south with the Huatoki Walkway.

The Huatoki Corridor Masterplan will be the guiding concept document for the delivery programme and look-and-feel of the Huatoki corridor. A framework for surface materials, planting schemes and wayfinding features along the Huatoki will ensure the Huatoki corridor creates coherent and inclusive spaces for the community that provide opportunities to engage with the water, while enhancing the natural character of the stream.

The Huatoki Corridor Masterplan should be underpinned by a wider Huatoki catchment management plan to support the mauri of the stream's ecosystems along its whole length, and provide enough detail to enable independent future design development of four main project sites:

  • The Landing
  • Huatoki Plaza
  • Huatoki Daylighting
  • Sir Victor Davies Park
