Plans to build a Pacific Island village in New Zealand

Planning permission is being sought to build a  $100,000-plus Pacific Island village in Porirua, a city near Wellington in New Zealand.

The man making the proposal, Ueli Sasagi, says that with 26 per cent of Porirua’s community made up of Pacific people, it was the ideal place for the proposed village.

Ueli, a resource management planner, has proposed the ”Pacific on Show” village to Porirua City Council, which is this week taking submissions on its 10-year plan.

It would be strongly rooted in the area’s cultural heritage, rather than being a ”Hollywood show”, said Ueli.
