We are rolling out our 14 year programme to transform Paraparaumu town centre.

As part of the FutureKāpiti Long term plan 2015-35 Council adopted the achievable programme for transformation of Paraparaumu town centre. 

This exciting transformation will make Paraparaumu the heart of the district and the primary focus for retail, commercial, cultural and civic activity. Our Masterplan gives an overview of the developments planned over the next 12-18 months.

Paraparaumu Masterplan

Plans to develop the town centre include:

Our programme of work is flexible enough to accommodate other opoortunities happening in the town centre, namely:

  • Two significant developments from Coastlands, one of which includes retail expansion adjacent to Rimu Road (mentioned above).
  • Design work to turn SH1 into a local road is happening this year and we’re working with the NZ Transport Agency to influence this.

Already completed

We have completed improvements to Kāpiti Road between Arawhata Road and Ngahina Street.

This was the first town centre transformation project to be completed providing safer pedestrian and cycle access to the centre of the town.

Transforming our town centres will take time and work has been spread over a 14 year programme of activity.
