SECTION 1: COASTAL VALUES AND EXPERIENCES ON THE KĀPITI COAST

The Kāpiti coastline is approximately 40km long. As well as being the location for significant urban development, our beautiful beaches are an important community asset with many unique characteristics and natural qualities. Like many coastal communities around Aotearoa, Kāpiti is facing significant environmental challenges from our changing climate and associated rising sea and groundwater levels.

 While there is still much uncertainty about how significant these challenges will be and how quickly they will happen, we know there is a crucial need for our Kāpiti community to start planning for our future. Communities that plan for change are more resilient when it needs a response.
