Planning for the future during challenging times

Porirua City, like all councils across the country, is experiencing a sharp increase in costs to deliver services and projects. Increases in the cost of energy, water supply, insurance and interest rates all mean that just providing our core services like rubbish, roading and pipes is costing more. Take a look at some of the challenges we're facing, what we plan to do about them and, what our key focus has been during the LTP planning process so far.  You can read the full LTP discussion paper here.

    Rural rates increases without any correlated benefits

    by Rachel Robinson, 25 days ago

    Year on year PCC has increased rates by double digits for those who live in rural areas.

    Rural rate payers do not have access to the services which cost PCC 55% of their spending of gathered rates. Rural household install and maintain their own water, wastewater and often roading. In addition, they also pay for their refuse collection and pay for additional rural postal services. If PCC continues to require higher payments for rural rate payers, they will simply make rural living untenable in Porirua. Effectively they pay twice for every service. once through rates to PCC (which provides for... Continue reading

    No to rates increase

    by P1553D, about 1 month ago
    Everyone is financially stretched as it is, and the local council wants to increase the rates by nearly 18%??? That is insane. Many families can barely afford the current rate, let alone a bump that massive. I don't for the life of me understand how a rate that high is justifiable.

    We are all in the same boat trying to live how we always live without having to pay more to do so. This is just not possible in the world we live in today. I still want to turn on my tap and get good clean drinking water, I want my rubbish and recycling to be picked up, I want to be able to use the city's facilities without a major price hike to be able to use them, and I want our city to be the best it can be and right now it means that our rates need...

    No to rate increase

    by Plimmertonhomeowner, about 1 month ago
    Central government requires a 6.5% to 7.5% reduction in costs and the council should do the same. A17.5% rate increase is ridiculous and the council must cut back on all extraneous spending beyond the statutory requirements for services. No more wasteful spending on fripperies. The council is bloated and cost inefficient and can and must deliver core services with a rates cut.

    No to water meters

    by PeteJ, about 1 month ago
    I am totally opposed to water meters. It will cost the Council millions to install and does nothing to improve the poor state of pipe work which is the reason we run short over summer. It costs no more to reticulate 10,000 litres than 1000 litres so why should we pay by volume used? This is just another way to create an income stream for Council and we will all end up using less but paying more just like the Kapiti Coast.

    Two observations:

    What happened to all the ratepayers' cash raised over the past 15-20 years for depreciating our water assets? Did Porirua CC spend the cash on non-water items?

    Why keep wasting cash on non-essential things, instead of focussing completely on essential services such as water and roads?

    Transposing costs and potential displacement impacts

    by Charmaine , about 2 months ago

    Tēnā koe,

    Ka nui te mihi to Ngāti Toa Rangatira as the custodians of the whenua, Te Awarua-ō-Porirua and Te Moana-ō-Raukawa. Kei Hongoeka Bay ahau e noho ana.

    It is understood that the 3 Waters initiative is stood down, and statutory responsibilities have been shifted to local authorities in addition to meeting all the legislative requirements. That is a brutal hospital pass onto all councils and extremely hard on PCC kaimahi.

    It is universally understood climate events occur. Many of us are living near slips, and have been affected by flooding, and witnessed the structural harm from king tides. Huge... Continue reading

    We are already paying a lot of rates. Whatever excuse u say to increase this to 17.5 percent is unjustifiable

    Rates increase

    by Y R, 4 months ago
    What is the 18% figure referring to? Surely that's not the average rate rise for this year. I am all for well-funded public services, but our rates are so far out of whack in Porirua that I'm not sure this is the answer.
