Events management (temporary)

Peka Peka to Ōtaki Expressway

The Peka Peka to Ōtaki Expressway and Transmission Gully construction projects are not Council projects.  They are NZTA (New Zealand Transport Agency) projects and all decisions regarding their routes and design are made by NZTA.  Check out their websites for more information.

Fencing

If a fence is between a privately owned property and a public reserve, the cost of repair of said fence is the responsibility of the private property owner.  The reserve is classified as “public property” and is therefore exempt under the Fencing Act 1978.

Graffiti

Council does not remove graffiti from private properties.

Community Graffiti Clean-up Packs can be borrowed from the Council’s service centres in Ōtaki, Waikanae and Paraparaumu. These kits can be borrowed for a week at a time - more information can be found below.
Each tool box contains:

  • graffiti remover spray

  • small roller
  • large paint brush
  • one small high-vis jacket – Yellow
  • one XL high-vis jacket – Orange

The packs are being provided by Keep NZ Beautiful, Ministry of Justice, Keep Waikanae Beautiful and Kāpiti Coast District Council.
