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.

Our vision

Porirua City, a great place to live, work, and raise a family.

Strategic priorities

In the short term Council will focus on four things of key importance

  1. Investing in 3 waters infrastructure and catchment restoration
  2. Proactively responding to the climate crisis
  3. Advocating for and providing a safe, healthy and thriving community
  4. Putting children and young people at the heart of the city
