City planning & reporting

Planning and reporting on our mahi is a key strategic activity.

Council's mahi. It's a big job

We work to ensure the wellbeing and hauora of Porirua City, today and tomorrow. This means balancing social, economic, cultural and environmental issues. We value democratic decision-making so we work closely with our community on these issues so that our decisions reflect community values.

Our strategic priorities

Porirua is already a great place to live, work and raise a family but we need to look to the future. We have identified four priorities that we think are key foundations for the city to succeed.

Long-term planning

Our Long-term Plan sets out the priorities, projects and activities we’ll be focusing on over the next 10–20 years.

District Plan

The District Plan directs how we change, develop and use our environment, as well as how we protect and safeguard it for future generations.

Annual planning

Every year we plan for the coming year. The annual plan is made after receiving input from you about the services you need. The plans also outlines major projects we are undertaking, and how these will be paid for.

Annual reporting

Our annual report shows how well we’ve managed our projects, services and financial performance against the original intentions of the Long-term Plan (LTP).

Asset management

Assets help deliver our activities. A large portion of our total expenditure relates to renewing, improving, and growing our asset base.

Statistics & monitoring

Good information helps us make good decisions for our city and to monitor our progress.

Porirua Growth Strategy 2048

Our growth strategy informs, guides and influences the distribution of people, activities and spaces within our growing and changing city.

Reserves management

We know how much you love our wonderful parks, maunga and reserves. We need to care for these places so that future generations will also be able to play and to enjoy our heritage.

Climate change

Our city continues to face the effects and impacts of climate change. We are in the early stages of developing a strategy, Te Ao Hurihuri, and will look to our community for input and direction in the coming months
