Let’s talk about the year ahead Porirua City

Proposed Annual Plan 2017-18

We all know that Porirua City is already a great place to live, work and raise a family, but there is always room for improvement!

Developing and improving the city costs money, and we’re committed to making rates as fair and affordable as possible. So we need to work together to decide what the city should invest in. A lot of what we do is business as usual, such as making sure water flows when you turn on your tap on, and making sure our roads are safe to drive on. But there are some important decisions we need to make as we look ahead to 2017-18 and beyond. These include:

  • our proposed average rates increase of 4.9 per cent
  • the property revaluations and the introduction of a City Development Rate
  • Wellington Region Waste Management and Minimisation Plan
  • considerations for the next Long-term Plan 2018-28.

Alongside the Annual Plan we are also consulting on the Wastewater Bylaw and the Revenue and Financing Policy.
