We want our town centres to be vibrant, diverse and thriving - places where people want to spend their time and where they can access the services they need.
The Expressway is here and we need to ensure our two largest town centres, Paraparaumu and Waikanae, remain attractive places for people to do business, invest and spend time.
Since 2014 we’ve been working with the community, tāngata whenua, local businesses and others to develop a vision and plan for transforming our town centres. Budgets have been agreed through our FutureKāpiti Long term plan 2015-35 and we’re rolling out a 14 year programme of work.
Our goal is to create vibrant, diverse and thriving town centres that are easily accessible, reflect the unique flavour of each town’s centre, attract visitors and investment alike, and have more people working locally in higher paid jobs. This involves a range of planned improvements, and some of that work intersects with our Stride n’ Ride Kāpiti Coast initiative and work to make the existing State Highway 1 a local road.
