Community Outcomes Monitoring Report

This page provides information on progress towards Porirua City's shared Community Outcomes.

Community Outcomes monitoring is important

cover - Community Outcomes Report 2007. Community Outcome monitoring is required by the Local Government Act 2002. A wide range of organisations contribute to the City's shared outcomes because they have a direct responsibility such as in coordination, delivery, funding and monitoring.  This means that effective partnerships – "working together" – is the key to sharing and making progress on our City’s priorities.

This section describes progress with Porirua's previous Community Outcomes - "how we are doing", provides a link to the most recent monitoring report and a series of "snapshots" of each outcome.

At least every 3 years, Porirua City Council is required to report on progress toward the City’s Community Outcomes.  The Porirua City Wellbeing – Community Outcomes Monitoring Report 2007 (see link below) is the first comprehensive progress report on the original 8 community outcomes established in 2004.  The outcomes have since been reviewed but it is important to see where we have come from and how we have done.
