We're investing in Porirua
Better homes. Great neighbourhoods.
Porirua is growing. In the next 30 years there could be 29,000 more people living in our city. We will need up to 11,000 more good quality, warm, dry, secure homes to support the growing community.
In November 2018 the Government announced a $1.5 billion investment over the next 25 years to work with the community on revitalising eastern Porirua.
We're partnering with Porirua City Council to deliver the work in eastern Porirua. We are also partnering with Ngāti Toa Rangatira to improve public housing in western Porirua.
In eastern Porirua the plan is to:
- replace older state homes that are past their best with warm, dry modern homes that are better suited to tenants' needs
- create opportunities for home ownership by building affordable homes (including KiwiBuild) and housing for sale on the open market
- design better neighbourhoods, including improving parks and streets, to make them safer, easier to get around and do business in.
