Ford urges vil­lage plan

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Wai­tan­girua res­i­dents are be­ing en­cour­aged to come to­gether at this week’s Cuppa Tea com­mu­nity meet­ing to kick-start a vil­lage plan­ning process for their neigh­bour­hood.

East­ern ward city coun­cil­lor Izzy Ford said Wai­tan­girua was one of the few vil­lages in Porirua with­out a vil­lage plan or a for­mal res­i­dents group.

The next Cuppa Tea meet­ing is at 10am on Thurs­day in the Wes­ley Com­mu­nity Ac­tion of­fices at Wai­tan­girua Mall (Ni­a­gara St en­trance).

Ford said the Wai­tan­girua com­mu­nity had suc­cess­fully worked to­gether in the past to de­velop the Wai­tan­girua Com­mu­nity Park in part­ner­ship with the vil­lage plan­ning pro­gramme and since then there had been sev­eral com­mu­nity fairs days.

‘‘How­ever, there is still no for­mal group of res­i­dents work­ing to­gether to take ad­van­tage of this vil­lage plan­ning part­ner­ship with coun­cil.’’

Thir­teen Porirua vil­lages are in­volved in vil­lage plan­ning.

For in­for­ma­tion, phone Izzy Ford on 0275 714 405 or email izzy.ford.03@gmail.com, or con­tact Wai­tan­girua vil­lage plan­ning li­ai­son of­fi­cer Seanoa Faraimo, 237 1503 or sfaraimo@pcc.govt.nz.
