Heritage Partnerships

"It might be a good idea if the various countries of the world would occasionally swap history books, just to see what other people are doing with the same set of facts."

- Bill Vaughan

Porirua City Council works with a range of heritage partners to achieve the sustainable management of Porirua's heritage, including the following organisations:

The New Zealand Heritage List

Heritage New Zealand – Pouhere Taonga maintains The New Zealand Heritage List/Rārangi Kōrero (‘the List’).  The List identifies New Zealand's significant and valued historical and cultural heritage places.

SEARCH the national List from the Heritage New Zealand website


BROWSE the entries relating to Wellington sites (pdf format).  The annual List is updated quarterly.

Landowners are also key partners in Council's approach to heritage management. For more information about how we support landowners please visit:
