Public Halls - Fees & Charges

Public Halls

Horowhenua District Council's Community Halls and Centres fees and charges for the 2017/2018 financial year are available below.

All fees are stated as GST inclusive and are effective from 10 July 2017. Council reserves the right to review any fees and charges at any time. Please check with Council for any updates.

Charge Rates

Charge rates for Community Centres and Halls are charged hourly, except where otherwise specified.

Where applicable, full day rate will apply if the hire is 5 hours or more.

Hall foyers cannot be booked for private use unless the entire facility is booked.

Hire fees do not include the opening of facilities for hirers. Where the facility is required to be opened specially, an opening/unlocking service fee will apply.

Two fee groups exist. These are:

  • Group A – Profit-Making Organisations, businesses, family functions, commercial functions, government agencies or Charged Events
  • Group B – Community Rate Organisations and groups applying for group B must be an incorporated society, charitable trust, community, voluntary or not-for-profit. If requested by HDC the organisation/group must be able to provide appropriate documentation e.g. a list of committee members. Organisations and groups requesting Group B fees must have a direct link to Horowhenua and the said activity must align with Horowhenua District Council’s four Community Wellbeing Goals:
  • A Proud Community – where everyone feels valued and respected.
  • A Connected Community – where everyone can access the facilities, services and activities they need to experience positive wellbeing.
  • A Safer Community – dedicated to injury prevention and safety promotion.
  • A Healthy Community – where everyone is ready to learn, with positive values and attitudes.

Where in the view of Horowhenua District Council the public benefit of the activity is seen to clearly outweigh the private benefit, then Group B charges will apply.

Users can apply to Council for concession for the use of community facilities for one-off events. Applicants must complete and submit a concession application form at either one of the two dedicated funding rounds.

Community Market Car Park is available for those wanting to sell goods, where people will be selling food applicants must ensure they comply with regulatory requirements. Communication with Council's Environmental Health Officer (EHO) may be necessary.
