The next stage in the consultation process about the future of Waikanae Beach is for volunteers to be part of a working group with Kāpiti Coast District Council and the Waikanae Community Board.
There will probably be four to six sessions of 1.5 – 2 hours at weekends or in the evening depending on majority preferences, with the broad areas of focus being
— to preserve the quiet, seaside village atmosphere and feel of Waikanae Beach – think small and think safe
— managing increased traffic flows as the expressway and Ngarara development come on stream
— maintaining and building on the parks, reserves and CWB (cycleways, walkways and bridleways) network and
— supporting the natural environment including the wildlife within it (streams, river, lagoons and beach)
Sam Hutcheson, Alison Lash and the team at KCDC are looking for people who want to do some serious thinking about this and who can commit some time to it.
If that sounds like you, please let them know by Wednesday 24 February (email Sam on email@example.com or Alison on Alison.firstname.lastname@example.org).
