Kia ora neighbours,
We are launching our new website AccessibleKapiti.nz as an initiative from the Kapiti Accessibility Advisory Group.
The website is dedicated to informing Kapiti Coast residents and visitors about accessibility in our region. But this is a two-way street. In the era of social networks, the information won’t only come top-down but especially bottom-up. We wish to establish a comprehensive database of services, tourist attractions and businesses that take accessibility into consideration.
And for that, we will need your help! Community contributions are essential for the development of the website.
Send us tips of places, pictures and news. Share it with your friends. Raise awareness in your social circles about the issue, and look for ways to make Kapiti more comfortable for all.
Business owners, this is a great opportunity to show that your place is friendly to all customers. Be it by having accessible pathways and most importantly by providing a mindful and attentive service. Send us information about how you take accessibility in mind and you’ll be on the website. That simple!
Do you provide any special service or are part of a group or organisation and want to have a voice on this issue? You are most welcome.
Kia ora koutou, I am Tui Lewis and I represent the Hutt City Council on the Whaitua Te Whanganui-a-Tara Committee, set up by the Greater Wellington Regional Council to make recommendations for maintaining and improving our taonga – our fresh and coastal waters.
I am honoured to have the privilege of serving Te Awakarangi and to support the kaitiakitanga of our special environment with the Whaitua Te Whanganui-a-Tara committee. We are looking forward to working with you to maintain and improve the quality of the water in our catchments. Growing population is placing an immense pressure on our waste and stormwater pipes. We need to fix our infrastructure to leave a healthier catchment to our children, and fixing infrastructure is costly. These are big changes, and needs to reflect our communities’ views informed by good evidence and information to find solutions that are fair and equitable.
Come and talk to me about what we can do together. Connect with us to talk about what we can do together. You can reach us at email@example.com.
