This consultation is now closed.

Paekākāriki Surf Lifeguards celebrated its centenary in 2013, making this iconic club one of the oldest in the country. It is estimated that the efforts of the club have rescued well over 1000 people from life-threatening situations in the past 100 years on the Kāpiti Coast.

Over the past 50 years, the clubhouse has been battered by the environment and is now in a poor state of repair. It's time to move out of the old building to:

  • Address major structural degradation
  • Mitigate against coastal erosion
  • Reconfigure patrol, meeting and storage spaces to improve performance and reflect the growth of the club.

Greater Wellington intends to grant a lease to the Paekākāriki Surf Lifesaving club for a period of 30 years pursuant to Section 59A of the Reserves Act 1977 and Part 3B of the Conservation Act 1987. The new clubhouse proposal is available in the documents link on the right and we welcome your feedback on the developed plan. This consultation closes at 3pm, Tuesday 6 April 2021.

If you have any questions about the proposal or the consultation, please use the Q&A tool in the tab below.
