Council awaits independent process review of Te Uruhi
The Kāpiti Coast District Council has advised today that the independent process review of Te Uruhi, the Kāpiti Gateway Project, is expected to be tabled at a Council meeting in August.
The review follows concerns raised by the community and elected members about how some project decisions were made and how they were communicated.
Natasha Tod, Council’s Group Manager Strategy, Growth and Recovery, says independent consultants MartinJenkins were engaged by Council in April this year to examine the appropriateness of project phasing and timeframes, and whether the Council followed good practice in terms of what was communicated and when.
“A select number of interviews have been conducted with key stakeholders, community representatives and Council staff who have been involved with the project over the last two years and MartinJenkins is now in the process of writing their report.”
It was originally anticipated that Council would receive a report with MartinJenkins initial findings before the end of June, but Ms Tod said a delay to the start of the interview process has meant timeframes have shifted.
