Council Regulatory Services on tour

Media Release: Tuesday 22 September 2015

Council Regulatory Services on tour

Horowhenua District Council's Regulatory Services staff are to hold public 'open day' sessions at various locations throughout the District from September 29.

Residents are encouraged to take the opportunity to attend a session nearby to ask questions and discuss topics such as:

• Building - work requiring consents and work that is exempt, fees, do-it-yourself projects.

• Liquor - use of Council facilities, special licence needs, requirements to become a bar manager.

• Health - what food grades mean, selling food at events or to fundraise, opening a food business.

• Animal Control - dog registrations, nuisance issues, fees and charges, how to get a reduced fee.

• General - noise issues, parking.

Customer and Regulatory Services Manager Mike Lepper says the road tour will be an opportunity for people to sit and talk face-to-face with staff in an informal setting. Sessions are free and no appointment is necessary.

"We really want to help people and give them the right information they need. While Council must work within the regulatory rules, we want to help people achieve what they want as simply and quickly as possible," Mr Lepper said.

Seven sessions are to be held:

• Tuesday 29 September: 10.30am - 12noon at Tokomaru Hall and 1.30pm - 3.00pm at Shannon Memorial Hall.

Gordon Campbell: On How Climate Change Threatens Cricket‘s Future

Well that didn’t last long, did it? Mere days after taking on what he called the “awesome responsibility” of being Prime Minister, Christopher Luxon has started blaming everyone else and complaining that he's inherited “economic vandalism on an unprecedented scale” - which is how most of us would describe his own coalition agreements, 100-Day Plan, and backdated $3 billion handout to landlords...

Public Housing Futures: Christmas Comes Early For Landlords

New CTU analysis of the National & ACT coalition agreement has shown the cost of returning interest deductibility to landlords is an extra $900M on top of National’s original proposal. This is because it is going to be implemented earlier and faster, including retrospective rebates from April 2023. More

Green Party: Petition To Save Oil & Gas Ban

MFAT's decision to remove te reo from correspondence before new Ministers are sworn in risks undermining the important progress the public sector has made in honouring te Tiriti. "We are very disappointed in what is a backward decision - it simply seems to be a Ministry bowing to the racist rhetoric we heard on the election campaign trail," says Marcia Puru. More
