Long Term Plan 2012-22: Help unlock our City's future
The Long Term Plan (LTP) for 2012-22 sets out proposed priorities, projects and activities the Council will focus on over the next 10 years and how these services will be funded.
The Council received 235 submissions on its Draft Long Term Plan and after listening to your feedback, made a number of changes to its final LTP. To accommodate the added expenditure the average rate increase is now set at 3.4%.
* retaining some litter bins in parks, reserves and shopping centres;
* closure of Plimmerton library and retaining current operating hours in all other libraries;
* providing $6000 per annum to fund additional Surf Lifesaving services at Titahi Bay beach;
* adding $40,000 per annum for the Porirua Partners Programme to source external revenue;
* increasing infrastructure investment for stormwater upgrades by $200,000 per annum;
* reinstating the Wi Neera to Onepoto walkway with $150,000 in 2013/14 for the design/cost/consent stage of the project;
* reinstating $50,000 per year to assess residents' feedback on Council services;
* providing an extra $156,000 for increased insurance premiums for the first year of the LTP;
* support in principle for the Aotea College Te Manawa (performing arts) Redevelopment project;
* support in principle for the concept of a writers walk in Porirua city centre.
Those of you who took the time to make submissions will shortly receive individual letters from the Council responding to the issues you raised.
