Kapiti Urban Area is classified as a main urban area because its population exceeds 30,000, it was 40,900 at 30 June 2012. But unlike the other main urban areas it is not centred on a city. Instead, the urban area spans three "towns":
The largest of these is Paraparaumu. Raumati may be considered a suburb of Paraparaumu or a separate town in its own right. There are no legal definitions for towns in New Zealand.
Kapiti is better described as a commuter area of Wellington than an independent city.
