We are a coastal advisory panel of iwi partners and community representatives who have been asked to assist our community to have a conversation on how we respond to the coastal hazard risks of sea level rise and climate change in our district.

We'll draw on robust, transparent and accessible technical, social and economic evidence, indigenous knowledge, and wider community input to develop medium- to long-term coastal adaptation options.

We'll present Council with a range of recommendations as to how our community can manage and adapt to the coming changes to our coastline. These recommendations will help guide the development of District Plan provisions to manage coastal issues, and develop an approach to help the district deal with coastal hazards in the future.

Join the conversation

We're reaching out to you, our Kāpiti District communities, to find out how you think our district should respond to coastal hazards from sea-level rise.

Community involvement in our work is crucial. We want you on this journey! We will be using a variety of methods to help you connect with us and join the conversation. These include: public meetings, printed flyers and brochures, promoting our events on social media and local newspapers, a presence at events such as market days, the Takutai Kāpiti website, and surveys like this one.

Let's start with what matters to you about our coast and how you think we can best represent you. You have two ways of joining the conversation below:

  1. Visit our ideas board, and/or
  2. Click on the map tab then drop a pin to tell us what you value most, don't want, want to see more/less of, or what you're concerned about - anything goes! Then share it to encourage others to have their say too.
