All complaints regarding noise generated from the Kāpiti Coast Airport or airport activities can be made by either:
The complaint should include as much information as possible to help the investigation and then docmentation and findings regarding the complaints will be reviewed by the Community Liaison Group.
An airport related group came into existence in August 2007 following the adoption of the Airport Noise Management Plan by the Kāpiti Coast District Council.
The Airport Noise Management Plan was developed by a review panel and accepted by council in September 2010 as meeting the new District Plan requirements.
At council’s 13 September 2012 Regulatory Management Committee (RMC) meeting, the revised Airport Noise Management Plan was endorsed.
The CLG is comprised of representatives from the Paraparaumu community, airport users, airport owner and management and local iwi.
