About Kāpiti
Air Urban

Kāpiti has a unique opportunity to create an innovative asset that fosters wellbeing and prosperity for our region, for generations to come. 

 

We want to hear your thoughts on our vision.

Kāpiti Air Urban is a collective of local community members, businesses, pilots, and airport users who envision a brighter future for Kāpiti Airport and the surrounding land than a high-density housing development. Our core focus is on the ongoing wellbeing and prosperity of our community. 

 

Originally known as Save Kāpiti Airport, our work extends far beyond simply keeping the airport and resuming with the status quo. ‘Kāpiti Air Urban’ is a more accurate reflection of our multi-faceted vision for sustainable development that benefits our whole region. 

 

We are proposing a future-focused mixed use model that will enable the airport to reach its full potential while enriching the area with thoughtfully designed housing, community spaces, infrastructure, education and employment opportunities.

 

Kāpiti Airport and the surrounding land have untapped potential, and present unique opportunities to bring places and spaces to life that benefit our people, our economy and the environment. 

 

We support sustainable development in alignment with mana whenua aspirations and in partnership with local iwi, local government and the private sector.
