The District Plan is the rulebook for how land can be used. It applies to every property in the city, and provides the blueprint for how Porirua will grow. It also sets out how we will look after the things in our city that we value. We therefore encourage you to take this opportunity to help shape Porirua’s future.
The Proposed District Plan (PDP) was notified on 28 August 2020 (use Google Chrome for best results)
Hearings on the PDP commence from late September 2021. For all hearing-related information please visit our Hearings Portal.
We understand that RMA processes can be a little daunting so a 'Friend of Submitters', Emily Bayliss, has been available through the submission period to assist submitters. Emily will continue to be available to help submitters in the lead-up to the hearings.
Emily is a qualified planner who is fully independent and has had no involvement in developing the Proposed District Plan. A brief introduction from Emily is available here.
To contact Emily for assistance please email FriendofSubmittersPDP@poriruacity.govt.nz or phone 021 532 284.
The Friend of Submitters service is provided by the Council to remove barriers and foster participation in the Proposed District Plan
The Proposed District Plan is a complex document and we would welcome the opportunity to help you understand it. If you would like to talk to a member of our friendly planning team please email or call us on: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 04 237 5089.
