Village planning ‘unplugged’

Here’s a walk through Porirua city’s village planning programme, meeting the people, seeing the places, the changes…for good.

It’s not just our waterways that are benefiting from Porirua’s innovative village planning programme…

About robynmmoore

Anything to do with water and I'm interested! I've been writing (often paid, but just as often unpaid) and commenting about water and related matters since 2006. In 2009, I finished a thesis on Kapiti's water issues and am still researching outcomes there. I am a compulsive researcher. Blogging may feed or resolve this:) There's much for our communities to understand about water matters here in stunning Aotearoa. Yes, we have our dirty rivers and supply scarcity issues, but work is being done...My intention is to blog about what's going on with our water, from source to sea - and look for the 'best' places & actions, as much as 'worst'. This blog - and another I recently developed for Victoria University and Rotary ( - are part of my aspiration to contribute to 'shaping more sustainable communities'...also the title of my thesis. Look it up - it's free at

  1. Amazing blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally confused .. Any recommendations? Appreciate it!

      Highly recommend WordPress, but you need to be a little net and techno savvy. WordPress have beautiful templates, loads of flexibility, and you can pay just a little to customise or even migrate your site. Tumblr is a quick way to get started blogging, and you need no technical ability, but it’s quite a different platform, more like facebook I guess – depends what you want to say/put out there and who your audience is.
