Porirua City Coun­cil re­ceived 52 sub­mis­sions on pro­posed re­gional gov­er­nance op­tions.

Six sub­mis­sions sup­ported keep­ing the sta­tus quo.

Seven sub­mis­sions favoured a uni­tary ‘‘su­percity’’ model.

Thirty-one sub­mis­sions sup­ported some­thing in be­tween. The strong­est sup­port for any one model was for op­tion four – two tier lo­cal govern­ment, with seven sub­mis­sions in favour. Nine sub­mit­ters wanted a model com­bin­ing two or more op­tions.

Seven sub­mit­ters said Porirua needed more time to de­bate the op­tions, or be­lieved the six op­tions cramped full de­bate on fu­ture gov­er­nance op­tions.

One sub­mis­sion did not di­rectly ad­dress the is­sue.
