Otaraua Park draft development plan opens for public input

For one month starting on 9 July, the Kāpiti Coast District Council is asking the community for feedback on the long-term draft development plan for the 60ha Otaraua Park.

Parks and Recreation Manager Alison Law says that a long-term plan is needed now to ensure future options are not compromised by early development. 

“Over the past 18 months we’ve heard from a wide range of people about what they would like to see happen at Otaraua Park and, using their ideas and feedback, and the advice of our iwi partners, the draft plan has been developed to guide future investment in the park.”

The three focus areas of the survey ask:

  • What you think about the priorities identified
  • What specific ideas in the plan are most/least important to you
  • How important developing Otaraua Park is to our community.

The public survey closes on 9 August.
