While local authorities go out to their communities each year to consult on things such as their annual plan, all too often important issues are left hidden in the details and get missed out. There’s several recent examples of this in Kāpiti, such as:

  • The removal of the much loved kiosk at Maclean Park. Council’s consultation failed to capture the strong community attachment to it, and they ploughed ahead in removing and giving it away despite 70 per cent of locals wanting it retained.

  • Council’s plan to borrow an additional $30 million to gamble on the sharemarket, when we’re already one of the most indebted districts in the country.

Rather than relying solely on the Council’s consultation process, I’ll be running my own independent surveys of Kāpiti’s residents and getting their views on the issues that matter to them.

The first of these surveys is available to complete below.
