Reset won an international tender to prepare a new town plan for the Avarua Township in Rarotonga, Cook Islands.

The Town Plan is a tool that will shape the future of Avarua. It integrates all future planning and developments along common objectives, based on what the community wants. The Town Plan is structured under a high level Spatial Framework Plan, has a 5 year Development Plan and also includes a Long Term Vision. 

The key outcomes of the first ever Town Plan for the main township in the Cook Islands are to incorporate provisions for multi-modal transportation connections between the three key sites and the surrounding communities; provide for the integration and linkages of new public facilities into the fabric of central Avarua whilst enhancing the areas character, movement opportunities and public enjoyment; develop a strong public realm and a resilient transport system, and create an open space network and streetscape to stitch the central area of Avarua together
