These principles will also have to tie in with the SMARTGROWTH principles as well as CPTED (Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design). “The Way Forward” states the following elements as key issues and aims: Heavy vehicle traffic is a major problem in the Te Puke town centre. Not only is it a safety problem, but noise, vibration and particulate pollution is of concern. In addition, local shopping traffic is intimidated by big trucks as they “breathe down your back”. This will be partly re- solved once the Tauranga Eastern Arterial has been built, but continuing growth will soon gen- erate more traffic into and through Te Puke which will boost numbers to close to current lev- els and beyond. The question is what can be done in the short term and how the longer term will be resolved. There is a strong need to secure some relief options now for future imple- mentation, particularly if there is any delay in the provision of the Eastern Arterial. A further concern is the lack of a real ‘heart’ in the town centre. At the moment business de- velopment is not focused on a central area and there is a lack of concentrated foot traffic, vibrancy and amenity. Te Puke may in future be able to connect to a rail service to Tauranga. The design of the town centre should not only allow for it, but should positively work towards supporting passenger transport in general, eventually connecting all major activity nodes. The strategy should also allow for mixed-use development of business and residential accom- modation. This will tend to focus development, and encourage the town centre to grow in width rather than in length. In general the planning should create a vibrant town centre, with increased pedestrian safety, ease of movement, comfort and qualities that will attract people and business alike. This plan aims to achieve this by applying some key urban design principles to a range of issues raised in “The Way Forward” and the specific concerns expressed above. The following broad objectives and design guidelines have been used to identify and assess issues, formulate options and identify preferred solutions. Improve safety and a sense of community through improved accessibility and walkability. This includes: - connectivity. - pedsheds. - footpath qualities. Increase liveability by improved access to different activities and friendly street environments. This includes: - mixed-use (a development that contains residential as well non-residential spaces). - liveable streets. Improve general amenity to foster a sense of pride and belonging. This includes: - ensuring improved use and safety of open space features. - ensuring a sense of pride and belonging by celebrating heritage, art & culture. Foster sustainable business, retail & leisure as key components of the success of the town. These objectives are explained in more detail on the following pages.
