As part of the FutureKāpiti Long term plan 2015-35 Council adopted a 14 year programme to revitalise the Paraparaumu town centre. This exciting transformation will make Paraparaumu the heart of the district and the primary focus for retail, commercial, cultural and civic activity. Our masterplan gives an overview of the developments planned over the next 12-18 months.

Plans to develop the town centre include:
improvements to the civic precinct providing more open space and making Kāpiti Primary School more a part of the town centre (future works).
Our programme of work is flexible enough to accommodate other opportunities happening in the town centre, including:
We've completed improvements to Kāpiti Road between Arawhata Road and Ngahina Street. This was the first town centre transformation project to be completed, providing safer pedestrian and cycle access to the centre of the town.
We also completed the first two stages of improvements for the Kāpiti Lights area in November 2017. Click here for more details on the Kāpiti Lights improvements.
Revitalising our town centres will take time and work has been spread over a 14 year programme of activity.
