Take a look at our year in review

Annual report 2017-18

We’ve just published our Annual Report for 2017/18.

Here’s a quick note from Mayor Mike Tana –

Kia ora! It’s been another busy year in our progressive city. A big thank you to everyone who has contributed to this progress over the past 12 months.

This year we have seen so much positive growth, alongside all the things we do to keep our city running. From the revitalisation of our city centre and Transmission Gully Motorway opportunities to the roll-out of the more fit-for purpose recycling bins, nobody could accuse Porirua City of standing still during the past year.

The year ahead brings challenges, many in relation to the link roads with the new Transmission Gully Motorway.

As we move forward with the fine balance between environmental concerns and economic and employment opportunities, it is important to see the big picture of benefits that this major development will deliver to this city – improving access, reducing commuter times and generally improving Porirua’s profile and connectivity.

We are proud of Porirua City, its rich cultural diversity, heritage and outstanding natural beauty and I am proud to be part of our shared vision for its future.
