Community Issues

Village Planning

Each year PRA applies to the Council for funds towards projects within the Pauatahanui area.  The projects that PRA chooses are based on the outcomes of the community consultation from 2016-17.

The Village Plan identifies the community's vision for Pauatahanui Village and surrounding rural areas for the next few years. In November 2016 the PRA committee held a community meeting asking the question "Tell us what we can do to make Pauatahanui and surrounds an even greater place to live and visit." We collated the responses and then asked for these to be rated using our survey to enable us to prioritise them into our updated Village Plan, helping to inform the projects, initiatives and advocacy that PRA will undertake over the coming years. 

Pauatahanui is one of eleven "villages" involved in Porirua City Council's Village Planning Programme.  The programme has been set up by the Council as a partnership between the Council and the community.  The first Village Plan for Pauatahanui  was developed following a process of community consultation, led by the PRA. It lays out the community's goals and aspirations, aimed at improving and developing the local neighbourhood.  The plan provides a framework for planning and decision-making on matters concerning the development and maintenance of the village and is regularly reviewed by the PRA, with progress updates available on the Porirua City Council's website


Local Roading Maintenance

Concern over the maintenance of our local roads is an issue frequently raised with the PRA.  We continue to bring the concerns to PCC on a regular basis. The 14-15 November 2016 earthquake and flooding again highlighted the concerns - raising new issues and reinforcing the need to address the existing issues.  If you have a specific road concern, the first action is to call PCC at (04) 237-5089 or email .  You can also do an online Request for Service .  If you would also like to bring this to the attention of PRA then please email us
