We are installing a signalised pedestrian crossing on Rimu Road outside Coastlands' newest retail pod. This will make it easier for people to get from Coastlands to the civic precinct, Kāpiti Road and beyond.
Installation of the crossing forms part of our work to establish Rimu Road as the main street.
Work on the crossing is planned to start in May 2017 and be finished to tie in with the completion of the Coastlands' retail hub.
The development of the Coastlands' retail area on Rimu Road was the first stage of this transformation for Rimu Road.
Town centres are at the heart of our communities. We want Paraparaumu town centre to be vibrant, diverse and thriving – a place where people want to spend time and where they can access the services they need safely.
Transforming our town centres will take time and means working together with business, investors and the community. The Council cannot do this on its own.
Coastlands is building an exciting new two-storey retail space in the carpark adjoining Rimu Road. It will be a bustling hub of retail and café activity helping to link Coastlands to the civic precinct.
The Council and Coastlands have been working together to share and align ideas for developments that will transform Rimu Road into the main street of Paraparaumu.
Groundworks – August 2016
Construction – Sept 2016 – April 2017
Completion – May 2017
This retail expansion supports the delivery of the Council’s masterplan for transforming Paraparaumu town centre.
Work has been scheduled over a 14-year programme of activity.
