More than 200 sub­mis­sions have been re­ceived on Porirua City Coun­cil’s draft Long Term Plan, the doc­u­ment that will guide the coun­cil’s spend­ing for the next 10 years.

‘‘It seems to be a good num­ber for Porirua,’’ says Mayor Nick Leggett. ‘‘I’m more in­ter­ested in the qual­ity rather than the quan­tity and cer­tainly peo­ple seem to have been thought­ful in what they’ve said,’’ he says.

From his ini­tial read­ing, a strong theme is sup­port for the coun­cil dou­bling its spend­ing on wastew­a­ter and stormwa­ter in­fra­struc­ture, Mr Leggett says.

Other no­table feed­back in­cludes worry about coun­cil plans to cut back li­brary hours.
