This was adopted by the council the week before last, but is not yet on the council’s website.  However, according to the press release which is there:

“The plan, which sets the direction of Kāpiti for the next 20 years, focussing on the next three, includes four key initiatives:

  • transforming Paraparaumu and Waikanae town centres
  • rebuilding Te Ātiawa Park courts,
  • future proofing Ōtaki pool and building a splash pad next to the pool
  • investing in the Kāpiti College Performing Arts Centre (development of a community events facility will be revisited as part of the next long term plan).

Major projects to be undertaken during the term of the plan are:

  • constructing the Paekākāriki sea wall,
  • redeveloping the Raumati pool building
  • upgrading Mahara Gallery, subject to successful fundraising, and Waikanae Library,
  • planning and starting work on developing Otaraua park
  • creating a youth development centre
  • assessing earthquake-prone buildings.

“New fees and charges, changes to the rating system and a policy for revenue and financing were also adopted, along with a strategy for managing and growing the infrastructure and a policy to guide contributions made by developers.”

This makes no mention of a tap water reservoir, which is actually the most important issue.

For those interested, all submissions made by people and groups to the LTP can be read at the District’s libraries, 3 ring binders of them.
