Land Holdings Review
Porirua City Council is proposing to sell up to 30 under-used properties, to provide income for the city and help reduce debt. View the list of properties and maps on our Land Holdings Review page, and provide your feedback by Thursday 17 December 2015.
District Plan review underway
We are reviewing the District Plan; the plan that affects what you and your neighbours can do on your properties. We do it once every 10 years so this is our chance to get it right.
Take a look at the 12 discussion documents that outline some of the proposed rule changes and give us your feedback before 18 December 2015.
Go to our District Plan review page for more information, to view the discussion documents and find out how to have your say.
Spicer Landfill Updates
Our Spicer Landfill Updates page provides background and updated information as it comes to hand about work at Spicer Landfill.
On 9 June 2015, the Local Government Commission announced it will not proceed with its draft proposal for a two-tier single council in the Wellington region. The Commission will instead work with councils and communities on other options to address the challenges faced by the region. For more information on the Commission’s decision and other regional governance discussions, visit our Local Government Reform Information and Resources page.
