Porirua City Council currently has its Long Term Plan (LTP) out for a brief period of consultation.
Do you know how much your rates will be increasing in the 2021/22 year?
Do you know where this money is being spent in Porirua?
Do you think you are getting value for money?
If you have strong views about where and how your rates money is going to be spent, what you will (or won’t) receive for the increases to your rates, you need to let council know!
There is significant investment proposed in key areas over the 30 year planning period. Areas addressed in the plan include essential water infrastructure and maintenance (drinking, waste and storage) - a big cost. Also transport (roads etc) parks, property (new facilities - community centres, cultural art centre), resource recovery (landfill), change, living wage for PCC workers and the village planning funding.
