The Waimakariri District Council is one of the largest employers in the Waimakariri District and has become an employer of choice.
The Waimakariri District has enjoyed sustained population growth for more than 20 years, and this trend is expected to continue. As the second largest centre in the district, Kaiapoi has the opportunity to capitalise on this growth through enhanced commercial and retail offerings which draw on the strengths of the town, namely its location on the banks of the Kaiapoi River and its historic rivertown values.
Iconic stores such as Blakeleys Fine Furniture and Blackwell’s Department Store already attract shoppers from outside the Kaiapoi area and there’s opportunity to build on these examples and establish Kaiapoi as a destination for those seeking to live, relax, shop and dine.
There has been community concern regarding the ongoing prosperity of the town centre, for example a significant amount of spending by residents is currently occurring outside of Kaiapoi in areas such as northern Christchurch.
The 2011 Kaiapoi Town Centre Plan provided a response to these concerns, but now that the majority of that plan has been implemented, we need to find new projects that will build on that success and ensure Kaiapoi’s ongoing prosperity.
