Village planning programme

Porirua City's Village Planning Programme is a partnership with our communities to improve and develop their neighbourhoods.

The village planning programme puts communities in charge of developing a vision for their neighbourhoods and then partnering with us to make it happen.

The vision is developed through community consultation and put into village plans that lay out the goals and aspirations for the future of their neighbourhood.

Village planning projects

Fourteen communities are actively involved in village planning. Some are just starting out, while others are well established and have developed their own village plans, setting out their vision for their neighbourhood.

The diversity of these plans reflects the differing nature of the villages. Projects have ranged from a new waterfront promenade and skatepark, to a beach management plan and community fairs.

Village plans

Each village plan has been developed by our communities to guide the future development of their villages.  They are accepted as a working document by the city.

All plans are the latest version in PDF.
