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.

Operative District Plan 

The Porirua City District Plan became operative in 1999. It sets the framework for land-use planning, and contains the current provisions and rules which manage Porirua's resources and environment.


Reviewing our District Plan

We’re updating our District Plan to ensure it enables economic and residential growth while protecting the things that make Porirua special. We are currently consulting with the community on our draft digital District Plan. This draft has no legal effect.
