Welcome to the Horowhenua District Council's Alcohol Licensing pages where you can find out all about Alcohol Licences for businesses, functions and special events.
The Horowhenua District Licensing Agency (delegated by Council to a subcommittee) has a role to play in the reduction of liquor abuse through its responsibilities and obligations under the Act. Council believes that the key to achieving the aims of the Act is in the promotion of responsible attitudes of both licensees and the public in achieving a mature approach to liquor consumption. Our aim is to make sure that people in the Horowhenua can enjoy a safe and happy time in our region's Liquor establishments and to make sure everyone is upholding their legislative responsibilities.
If you have any questions please contact the Licensing Inspector on (06) 366 0999 or by email to email@example.com
