Nau mai! Haere mai! Warm Pacific greetings. Please join Porirua Development in this community event, hui tahi tātou o Porirua.
We’ve been talking to the community, local iwi and many other stakeholders about their aspirations for the future of eastern Porirua. From your feedback, Kāinga Ora, with support from Ngāti Toa Rangatira and Porirua City Council have created a plan to guide the development and investment in the area over the next 25 years. It’s a plan designed to help us deliver an even better place to live – both for the people who live here today and for future generations, over the next 25 years.
We’re excited to now share this draft Porirua Development Spatial Plan with you alongside other plans and programmes of work which we will inform the next steps for the project. We want to ensure these plans reflect your priorities and that we haven’t missed anything that’s important to you.
Bring the whānau down to our event and find out what’s planned around the seven key priority areas: local identity; natural environment; resilient and sustainable development; connections; vibrant centres; neighbourhoods; and homes. Share your thoughts, participate in the talanoa sessions and enjoy the many family activities.
