Promoting a vibrant, energetic Tawa

The Tawa Residents’ Association is a passionate and committed group of citizens of Tawa, working together and with other local groups to support and promote a vibrant, energetic Tawa.

Until 2016, we were known as the Tawa Ratepayers and Progressive Association. From 2016 – 2018, we were also known as Vibrant Tawa. While a more vibrant Tawa is still our aim, we’re now called the Tawa Residents’ Association.

What we do

We promote and support a range of initiatives in Tawa that promote and support strong community connections and resilience.  Each year we host Spring into Tawa, the annual festival which is now firmly on the Tawa calendar as the must-do event. 

We work closely with the Tawa Business Group and the Tawa Community Board to jointly work on projects that promote Tawa.

We work with the Wellington City Council to support and provide input into Council initiatives in Tawa as well as into broader planning and Council matters including transport, infrastructure, planning, and resilience and parking issues. The Community Board is our suburb’s official link into Council and we work closely with the Board to support them in their role.

We are a non profit organisation and always welcome more volunteers to our team!
