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.
