Future of Tireti Hall

Future of Tireti Hall

We’d like to hear your thoughts on the future of Tireti Hall under Section 83 of the Local Government Act 2002.

The formal consultation will open for submissions in early 2023 as indicated in the key dates below, until that time, Council invites you to read the Statement of Proposal and associated consultation documents.

The Proposal

Council is seeking feedback from the community on the future use of Tireti Hall in Titahi Bay.

Tireti Hall is currently the only Council-owned facility that can be used for community purposes in Titahi Bay.

Council has owned the building since the 1960s and has leased it to a range of organisations during that time. The current leases that were agreed in 2019 are coming to their end.

Porirua City Council has looked at how other councils manage their community halls and have come up with four possible options.

  • Extend the current leases until the five-year term is reached in December 2024
  • Place the hall on the Council-run booking system
  • Run a new open tender process to find a leaseholder on new terms
  • Delegate day-to-day management of the hall to a hall committee or other type of body.

We would like to know if the community would like us to manage the hall differently. This consultation is an opportunity for the public to have their say on how the hall is managed in the future. There are a number of other options that could be considered including returning the building to a library. Some of these ideas are more costly, longer term issues that can be considered for the future. This consultation is primarily concerned with the next 2-5 years. All feedback will be considered.

More information about what each option looks like, and the related costs and considerations are set out in the Statement of Proposal document (linked below).
