The Kāpiti Coast Council has released a new video showing its vision for the controversial Gateway Hub at Paraparaumu Beach.
The idea’s controversial because opponents claim, among other things, the Gateway would cost the Council $800,000 a year in running costs.
But the Council has come up with an empathetic videa stressing the Gateway’s vital links with Maori, the Coast and Kāpiti Island.
The KCDC says: “Keen to see what the proposed Kāpiti Gateway Centre at Paraparaumu Beach would look and feel like?
“Check out our new video (link below) which shows a purpose-built eco-facility that would fit snugly into its landscape — and the benefits the Centre could provide our district.
“Councillors have been briefed on the updated business case which was thoroughly reviewed by PwC New Zealand. We’ve listened to feedback and several changes have been made to the initial proposal for the operating model.
“The updated information will be uploaded to our website on Friday 19 February in time for the Council decision on 25 February.”
