Plans set for hall’s fu­ture

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

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.
