Jigsaw IconCommunity services

The community services cluster covers a range of council activities that enhance life for Kāpiti residents and visitors.

The council has a role in encouraging economic growth, and with stakeholders and our iwi partners we have developed a focused economic development strategy.

We maintain community facilities such as halls and meeting spaces throughout the district and fund a range of local organisations from surf lifesaving to the citizens advice bureau.

We look after more than 500 hectares of parks and sportsgrounds which provide opportunities for diverse recreation activities. Kāpiti also has an extensive network of cycleways, walkways and bridleways.

We provide several swimming pools, library facilities across the district and support various arts and heritage activities that are important to our community.
