Public Halls - Fees & Charges

Public Halls

Horowhenua District Council's Community Halls and Centres fees and charges for the 2016/2017 financial year are available below.

All fees are stated as GST inclusive and are effective from 1 July 2016. 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 Halls and Centres are charged hourly. Each room will be charged out separately. Hall foyers cannot be booked for private use unless the entire facility is booked. Hirage fees do not include the opening of facilities for hirers. Where the facility is required to be opened specially, an opening/unlocking fee will apply.

Two fee groups exist. These are:

  • Group A - Profit-Making Organisations/Family Functions/Commercial, Government or Charged Events; and
  • Group B - Community Events/Use – including Organisation-run dances, social events and concerts, hobby and sports groups. (This discount will apply only where there is clear evidence of financial hardship.)

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. The types of organisations where Group B rates will apply include Incorporated societies and established community groups. Council shall negotiate with users long-term hireage and complex use. Users can apply to Council for concessions for the use of community facilities. Concessions for hall usage must be made in writing and are approved at the discretion of the Group Manager - Customer & Community Services.
