Reviewing our District Plan

Porirua is changing and growing and we want to make sure we are able to shape how it changes so it's an even better place to live, work and raise a family.

Porirua is growing and changing and we want to work with the community to help shape this change. To do this the Porirua City Council is reviewing its District Plan as well as developing a Growth Strategy. 

The Growth Strategy will provide the high level direction around ‘why’ and ‘where’ we will grow and change, whereas the District Plan review will create rules around ‘how’ we change and ‘what’ this will look like, while also directing how we protect our environment.


Our Draft District Plan 

We’re updating our District Plan to ensure it enables growth while protecting the things that make Porirua special. The draft District Plan contains objectives and policies for community feedback and input. 


Growth Strategy 

Porirua City is changing quickly and we want to make sure we’re able to influence how it changes and grows so that it’s an even better place to live, work and raise a family in the future.


Ecology and Landscapes

We’re working to identify and protect important landscapes and significant natural areas in our beautiful city.


Coastal hazards and resilience

We want to manage the risk from coastal hazards in Porirua and improve the resilience of our communities, now and into the future.


Make your mark

In 2017 we worked with the community to understand the issues we are facing, clarify outcomes and consider the range of options we have to deal with particular issues.
