SUPER CITY SUBMISSIONS:
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.
