Representation

For the 2013 election Kāpiti Coast District voters will elect the Mayor, Councillors, and the Community Board Members.  They will also vote for District Health Board representatives, and for a Regional Councillor.

The councillors will be elected as follows:

  • District as a whole - five Districtwide or 'at large' Councillors
  • Ōtaki Ward - one Ward Councillor   
  • Waikanae Ward - one Ward Councillor
  • Paraparaumu Ward - two Ward Councillors
  • Raumati/Paekākāriki Ward - one Ward Councillor

There are four Community Boards each of which has four elected members.  These boards are:

  • Ōtaki
  • Waikanae
  • Paraparaumu/Raumati
  • Paekākāriki. 

Each Board has the Ward Councillor appointed back to them, except for the Paraparaumu/Raumati Community Board which has the two Ward Councillors appointed back to it, in recognition of the fact that it represents a greater part of the District.

The current representation structure is the result of a representation review carried out in 2010 when the Local Government Commission (LGC) made its determination. Following are boundary maps for the District:
