Porirua City Council’s District Plan proposals could change the face of Pauatahanui......


The current District Plan has been in place since the late 1990s but there have been many changes in Pauatahanui since then.  The draft of the new proposed District Plan has just been released and potentially will bring further changes. 

To see what is proposed you can view the ePlan online at the Porirua City Council website.

There is an opportunity to find out more at the Council's drop in session on Monday 23 September at the Judgeford Golf Club from 4.00pm to 8.00pm.

Specific to Pauatahanui is the creation of 3 new rural zones.  The objectives, policies and rules for each of these zones can be found under PART 3 AREA SPECIFIC MATTERS / RURAL ZONE

or here as a pdf

General rural zone.pdf

Rural lifestyle zone.pdf

Settlement zone.pdf

The allotment size criteria for each of these zones can be viewed under PART 2 DISTRICT WIDE MATTERS / SUBDIVISION and then scrolling down to SUB-S1.

The accompanying map provides information on specific zones, down to an individual property level, as well as the ability to turn layers on and off that identify features such as historic sites, significant natural areas and natural hazard zones.

The plan and feedback are designed to be online although sections of the plan can be printed as a pdf.

If you would like more information you can contact the District Planning Team at Porirua City Council.  The Pauatahanui Residents Association is also happy to assist so contact us on
