Keep expressing yourself Kāpiti!

Thousands took the opportunity to engage with us at the Kāpiti Coast ExpressDay! We loved seeing so many Kāpiti folk and visitors visit the Council marquees at Te Roto Drive in Paraparumu and Te Moana Road in Waikanae. People really embraced the opportunity to talk with members of our team! Good news, it's not a one-off. We’re after more input from our communities to help shape our work and give us feedback on how we’re doing - sign up for our Express yourself forum to continue shaping future Kāpiti.

Spark up!

SparkPlugs are coming to the Kāpiti Coast! We're partnering with Spark to extend electric vehicle chargers, or SparkPlugs, to phone boxes in the district. The new chargers will be free to use for the first 12 months with five plugs being installed in Waikanae, Paraparaumu Beach, Raumati Beach and Paekākāriki.

Paekākāriki seawall

The Paekākāriki seawall replacement project is progressing well, with residents checking out the design and artists impressions at a recent community meeting. The seawall's expected to be completed by mid-2019 and will be a combination of concrete, timber and rock with a walk/cycleway along the top.

Ōtaki Memorial Hall

A detailed assessment of Ōtaki Memorial Hall has confirmed it's earthquake prone. There's signs on the building letting people know. Being assessed as earthquake prone doesn't prevent people from using or occupying the building, but we want you to know any earthquake risk if you're entering or close to it.

Creative communities scheme applications closing soon

Feeling creative and wanting some help to flourishing in our culturally diverse community? We're accepting applications for Creative New Zealand funding for Creative Communities Scheme up until Friday. Projects may be large, complex and involving many people or they can be smaller-scale projects involving just a few individuals. We're committed to supporting opportunities for Kāpiti folk to engage in the arts whatever their circumstances.
