Plans set for hall’s future
Porirua Little Theatre and the Titahi Bay Residents’ Association have been working to save the theatre.
They have agreed to work together towards achieving the following outcome:
The hall must be restored so that it is compliant, safe and useable.
Porirua Little Theatre continues as the key tenant with a long-term lease.
The hall must remain in community ownership.
Both organisations are willing to put resources into restoring the hall if this can be achieved before Porirua City Council’s next longterm plan process.
Wendy Leary of the residents’ association working group and Sandy Brewer from Porirua Little Theatre said they were delighted that a positive message was being put forward to work constructively on restoration of the hall.
The hall has been closed since 2012 when Porirua City Council deemed it unsafe after extensive water damage was discovered.
The council has been seeking community feedback on its future.
