How Paekākāriki can create an even stronger community through the COVID crisis

We already know we’ve a strong community. We’ve weathered crises in the past; flu epidemics, floods, earthquakes. And we’ve done that because we care for each other and we’re willing to go out of our way to check in on each other and offer help. And that is how we’ll get through COVID too. Check our COVID-19: A stronger community page. We are working alongside our emergency response team to bring you updates and offers of help. We are taking the chance to refresh our emergency strategy and database including medical professionals (ex and current) in the village. If you would like to be involved, we’d love to have you! Please contact us.

It’s our mission to engage with you in the most effective way possible. We are here to work for you, to promote your issues and initiatives and to be a conduit for community development. To enable democratic local decision-making and action, by and on behalf of Paekākāriki.  If you’ve got ideas or concerns, we’d love to hear from you. How? You can call and email us, chat to us after gigs, over beer or outside the milk fridge at Horace’s. You can come along and speak at our public meetings. Seriously, we want to hear what you have to say!

We also administer three grants: Paekākāriki Community Board grant, the  Campe Estate community fund and the Paekakariki Services Cub community grant. You can find our grant applications at the links, in our documents below or you can visit the KCDC site hereYou’ll also find our minutes and agenda  plus our meeting dates on the calendar.

 Wainuiwhenua (excess Transmission Gully land), SH1 Revocation and the Paekākāriki seawall replacement are hot topics and will continue to be for some time. Read through the document files to know more.

You’ll find a whole bunch of other official and useful stuff on this page from building consents to rubbish and recycling services.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with one of our members or pop along to a meeting if you’ve got something to say — or just come along to hear what ideas and issues others in the community may have. Bring some biscuits, we’ll do the tea.

We meet every six weeks at St Peter’s Hall on Tuesdays at 7.00pm. Nau mai haere mai!
