Conservation heritage sites in Kāpiti protected by Council funding
Sites of historic and natural significance stretching across the district are among 11 projects granted financial assistance from the latest Kāpiti Coast District Council Heritage Fund.
The Heritage Fund supports landowners and the Kāpiti Coast community to manage, protect and enhance ecological, geological, historical and cultural sites throughout the district. This year the Council’s Grants Allocation Sub-committee allocated $36,154 towards the projects.
"Heritage places are important in shaping the character of the Kāpiti Coast, and protecting them for future generations,” says Councillor and Grants Allocation Committee Chair Jackie Elliott. They are part of what makes Kāpiti unique.”
“The tenacious and selfless mahi (work) done by property owners and trusts across Kāpiti to restore and protect our rare natural wetlands and forests is truly visionary and very much appreciated, as is the work done to protect our heritage buildings, like the Telegraph Hotel in Ōtaki.”
