Porirua City is at the orange setting of the traffic lights protection framework. This means some changes to the way we work and live, as protections are in place to help minimise the spread of Covid-19 in the community. Find out more
If you own a property in Porirua City, you’ll receive a rates assessment notice at the start of the financial year (1 July) showing the rates you need to pay for that year.
There has been public debate about how rates are calculated and allocated. With this in mind, Porirua Mayor Anita Baker, Councillors and Council staff will be available to answer the public’s questions about rates at three public information sessions.
There is one online zoom session and two in-person sessions, and anybody is welcome to join.
The Rates Assessment Notice includes your property’s valuation and other information we’ve used to calculate your rates.
You will also receive a separate rates assessment notice showing the rates you are being charged by the Greater Wellington Regional Council.
Unless you make other payment arrangements with us, your rates are paid in four instalments for the financial year, which runs from 1 July to 30 June. We will email or post you a rates invoice for each instalment one month before it is due.
We are contracted to collect rates set by Greater Wellington Regional Council.
For more information about Greater Wellington’s rates policy, phone (04) 384 5708 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are 4 rate instalments per year.

If you receive your rates invoice by email AND pay your rates by direct debit, you’ll have the chance for another $150 to be credited to your rates account, as well as being entered into the $350 quarterly draw.
