Delivery of a regeneration framework for the eastern Porirua development project to assist iwi, Council and the community to work together towards a shared set of objectives.
The first urban development project to be mandated under the Wellbeing Budget, consisting of eight neighbourhoods, on the east side of Porirua, the redevelopment of thousands of homes, and the comprehensive economic, social and environmental regeneration of the area. A framework to guide the partnership between iwi, crown and council was needed.
The framework included mapping the governance arrangements, project structure and stakeholder groups, and defined what regeneration through a wellbeing lens looks like in the Eastern Porirua context. Also included was an outline of the roles of each of the partner agencies.
A multistage approach to delivery included desktop research, document review, engagement with the HLC, Porirua City Council, Ngati Toa and broader stakeholders, including the community, meant that all perspectives were included in the framework. The framework’s primary use was as a communication tool to help build understanding and awareness of the programme. It confirmed the strategic direction, and explained the breadth and depth of the programme to a range of public, private and third sector stakeholders.
