Welcome to our Paremata Village Web Site

Our Village, home of the Paremata Residents Association, contains the suburbs of Papakowhai, Paremata (including Mana), and part of Camborne. 

For a map of the village area and more information about the Residents Association, click here  (About Us).

The Village is one of eleven communities of suburbs within the city of Porirua, created by the Porirua City Council in its Village Planning Programme, an award-winning partnership between the Porirua City Council and its suburban communities.

The Programme puts communities in charge of developing a vision for their neighbourhoods and then partnering with Council to make it happen. This vision is brought together through community consultation and developed into Village Plans, which lay out the communities’ goals and aspirations for the future of their ‘villages’.

Community-Driven Emergency Response Plan

In the event of a major civil defence emergency, such as an earthquake, flood, or tsunami, residents cannot expect that emergency services will be able to respond to all parts of the affected region within the first two or three days after the event.  In Porirua city, and particularly in the Paremata Village, this means that we must be prepared to look after ourselves – and assist our neighbours if necessary – for several days without access to normal services such as power, telephone, water, drainage, sewerage, and normal medical treatment.

The Paremata Residents Association Committee, Porirua Healthy Safer City Trust, and Safer Porirua recently approached the Wellington Region Emergency Management Office (WREMO) to facilitate development of a local community-driven emergency response plan to assist our community to survive in the first few days following a major civil defence emergency event.

A complication for our Village is that the rail and road bridges over the entrance to the Pauatahanui Inlet at the South end of Mana Esplanade may be damaged or destroyed in a major event, cutting our community in two.  Our ‘worst case’ response plan will take that possibility into account by splitting the Village in two and treating each part as a separate entity for the purposes of emergency management.
