Kāpiti Economic Development Strategy refresh
Kāpiti Coast District Council is refreshing the Economic Development Strategy (EDS) for our district – a roadmap for iwi, business, community and the Council to foster a vibrant, diverse local economy.
Consultation closed on 9 July 2020, and Council adopted the new strategy on 31 July 2020.
See Supporting economic development for further information and a copy of the new strategy.
Economic development matters to all of us – it means improving our general wellbeing; more people living and working here; and much more opportunity and options for us locally.
The Council has been working closely with partners, iwi and stakeholders to ensure that the refreshed strategy reflects local views and economic insights, and that there is an implementation plan with deliverable actions and agreed accountability.
The strategy refresh has been based on consultation with local businesses and the community through the drafting group, a series of facilitated workshops, presentations and Council inputs.
The strategy identifies five key focus areas and actions to achieve its Ngā Moemoea/Vision:
Through partnership, support the growth of a vibrant, diverse Kāpiti Coast economy that provides increased opportunity, resilience and well-being for all.
