Our District

Strategy for Supporting Economic Development

Welcome to the Kāpiti District Economic Development Strategy for 2015 to 2018. This strategy provides a roadmap for Council, business and the community to continue to foster a thriving economy in the district.

It outlines how we can work together to harness local knowledge, skills and resources, while setting goals to help us make the best decisions.

The strategy was developed by the Economic Development Working Party, which includes representatives from the business community and council who are committed to supporting local ownership and leadership for the good of the whole district.

The strategy identifies four focus areas to support economic development:

  • Open for business
  • Building capability
  • Positioning Kāpiti
  • Leadership
