When required, the Kāpiti Coast District Council undertakes, or is supplied with, reports and surveys on the district and its environment.
The reports below vary from reporting on the performance of Kāpiti Coast District Council through to management of the environment.
The Annual Report comments on the performance measures for delivering on Council activities contained in the Long Term Plan or the Annual Plan, dependent upon which document was in place for the previous financial year.
Amendments to the Local Government Act 2002 introduced a new requirement for the Chief Executive to prepare a Pre-Election Report providing information for the community and prospective candidates to use during the election process.
The Pre-Election Report brings together information previously published in Council's Long Term Plan, Annual Plans, Annual Reports and associated summaries. It provides information to promote public discussion about the issues facing Council and is intended to enable a better informed election debate.

The reviews below look at the performance of Kāpiti Coast District Council from independent organisations.
The surveys below were commissioned by Kāpiti Coast District Council.
Resident opinion survey
It is important for the Council to know how Kāpiti residents feel about our performance and the way we deliver our many services and activities. One of the ways we do this is to undertake quarterly resident surveys – to look at what we do well, and where we need to make improvements.
We set ourselves performance targets for many of our services – both through our long term and our annual planning process. The survey results tell us how we are performing against these targets and inform our annual report each year.
We contract an independent research company, called Research First, to conduct our resident survey. They ensure it’s done correctly, using statistically representative samples of Kāpiti residents to get accurate results. Research First carries out similar surveys for other local authorities in New Zealand.
Key points to note:
Annual results for each financial year are usually published around August/September of the following year. Annual results for previous years can be accessed via the links below.
The Council contracted Research First to undertake the Residents Opinion Survey in 2016/17 and since then the survey has been conducted quarterly. Prior to 2016/17 there was a single annual survey undertaken each year.
