Ngā Pitopito kōrero mai i te Kaunihera o Kāpiti

Kia ora Kāpiti

Welcome to your latest update from the team at the Kāpiti Coast District Council. Here's what you need to know this week.

Paraparaumu Beach Markets

Don’t forget to get your submission on the relocation of the Paraparaumu Beach Saturday Morning Market in before 6 September. This popular Kāpiti institution is looking to secure a permanent home in Maclean Street which will require a partial road closure while the Market is in operation. We’ve loved hearing your feedback and support at our pop-up station at the Market so far!

Meet your candidates

Nominations are in for the 2019 local government elections and it’s great to see so many people interested in shaping our District’s future. It’s now up to you to decide who will best represent our community’s interests around the Council table. Check out our website for the full list of candidates, candidate profiles, and voting information.

Waikanae Beach intersection works

The Te Moana Road/Waimea Road/Ono Street safety improvements at Waikanae Beach are almost complete. We’ve added new sections of footpath on each corner of the intersection and have installed pedestrian refuge islands on each approach road.  The corner of Waimea Road has been re-shaped to encourage slower speeds around the corner and the Give Way sign on Waimea Road has been upgraded to a Stop sign.

Kāpiti good sorts - Otaki Skills Sharing Group

Every Wednesday morning, members of the Otaki Skill Sharing Group gather to improve their skills and contribute to different causes.  From making cotton clothing to send to girls in remote and impoverished parts of India, to stitching soft toys for St John’s Ambulance and knitting beanies, this group has got it covered.  Love your work Otaki Skill Sharing Group. Read more on our good sorts.

KiwiRiders on the

Our one-year loan of KiwiRiders has come to an end and the sculpture will soon bid farewell to the Kāpiti Coast. KiwiRiders has been purchased in a private sale and is now off to a new home. We want to say a great big thank you to artist Will Clijsen for sharing his work with our community to interact with and enjoy. KiwiRiders will be removed from its site on the berm of Marine Parade in Paraparaumu Beach within the next few weeks.

Mahara Place improvements complete

Mahara Place is looking great! We’ve created lovely areas for people to come together, enjoy and relax. Over the weekend we painted the exterior of the library building to make it look more presentable and in September we'll be installing the canopies above our decked areas. We’ll plan a celebration once it’s all finished and the weather is more settled - watch this space.

Edible gardens ready to be enjoyed in Ōtaki

Our Ōtaki Librarians and our Parks and Operations teams have been busy over the last few weeks planning and planting the new edible garden. Located in front of the Ōtaki War Memorial Hall and the clock tower, people can help themselves to silverbeet, choy, herbs and ornamental kale. Ka pai!
