Infrastructure is the single biggest item of council spending across the Kāpiti district. It includes many of the essential services we provide to residents and businesses and schools – supplying clean drinking water, ensuring there are systems for removing wastewater and stormwater, and managing local roading. Infrastructure also covers coastal management and solid waste.
Our infrastructure spending is a mix of service delivery, maintenance, replacement and renewals, and new construction.
Infrastructure has always been a major part of our planning. Now, all councils are required by law to have a 30-year infrastructure strategy and we have developed our first strategy as part of this long term plan.
The main points of the infrastructure strategy are summarised in the Financial overview and the full strategy is included in the Supporting information document.
