Community Boards work with ward councillors to represent the interests of the people in each of our towns and villages.
We have four Community Boards in Kapiti: Ōtaki, Paraparaumu–Raumati, Waikanae and Paekākāriki.
The Boards are elected every three years, just like the Council, and a Board representative can sit at Council meetings and contribute to the debate.
A Board’s role is mainly advocacy but it also has powers to make some decisions about issues within its boundaries. Boards make submissions to Council and other statutory agencies. They control local funds for making grants to individuals and groups for community purposes.
