The decisions made between 2019 and 2022 by our Mayor and Council will set the scene for the next decade’s worth of development, and beyond. In 2020, Transmission Gully is due to open - a significant event for the district, and we believe a bold, long-term vision is needed for our community as we enter a period of predicted growth.

We have identified three priorities for the incoming Council in our 2019 Local Body Election Manifesto, key areas we want both Councillors and Mayors to deliver on if elected to Council. These are:

  1. Fostering an ‘Open for Business’ Council,
  2. Delivering Better Infrastructure for Kāpiti, and
  3. Smarter Economic Development.

In choosing these areas, we wanted to keep it simple to ensure we focus on delivering results to businesses, ratepayers and the community. We want the incoming Council to deliver tangible outcomes, benefiting local businesses and our economy.

You will have a chance to Meet the Candidates on September 11, 7pm at the Coast Community Church at our local body election event. Make sure you register on our website and we’ll see you there.

The evening will start with tea, coffee and networking, followed by candidate pitches and Q&A. All Mayoral, Districtwide, Ward and Wellington Regional Councillor candidates’ have been invited to participate. Each candidate has been given the Kapiti Chamber Manifesto to consider – go to the Kapiti Chamber Manifesto >>
