When required, the Kāpiti Coast District Council undertakes, or is supplied with, reports and surveys on the district and its environment.
The reports below vary from reporting on the performance of Kāpiti Coast District Council through to management of the environment.
The Annual Report comments on the performance measures for delivering on Council activities contained in the Long Term Plan or the Annual Plan, dependent upon which document was in place for the previous financial year.
Amendments to the Local Government Act 2002 introduced a new requirement for the Chief Executive to prepare a Pre-Election Report providing information for the community and prospective candidates to use during the election process.
The Pre-Election Report brings together information previously published in Council's Long Term Plan, Annual Plans, Annual Reports and associated summaries. It provides information to promote public discussion about the issues facing Council and is intended to enable a better informed election debate.

It is important for us to know how residents feel about our performance over a range of services and activities.
The results of our survey are a key part of how we assess our performance at the Council. Targets are set in many areas through our long term and annual planning process and results form part of our annual report each year.
Independent research company, Key Research, conducts an annual telephone survey for council of a statistically representative sample of over 400 residents to establish levels of satisfaction with a selection of council’s services and activities. Respondents are also asked to rate those services and activities on how important they are to them.
Key Research has carried out similar surveys for other local authorities in New Zealand

“We’re committed to delivering on what’s important to our community. It’s heartening to see recognition for improvements in services, but we won’t be getting complacent.”
