Venue hire cost 


Venue hire rates have been standardised across Auckland. The rates are based on what each venue offers, and whether hirage is for peak or off-peak times.

Casual hire

You will be charged casual rates if:

  • you hire a venue once
  • you hire a venue less than 10 times in one financial year (1 July to 30 June).

Regular hire

If you hire a venue 10 times or more during a financial year (1 July to 30 June) you are considered a regular hirer and will receive a 20 per cent discount off the standard rates. You will need to apply for new and continued use each financial year.

To hire a venue on a regular basis, download the Regular hirer application form (PDF 190KB)

 

Priority activity discount

If your planned activity will benefit a local board area you can apply for a  50 per cent discount off the venue hire fees.

This priority rate supports activity that has a beneficial outcome for the community and excludes private use or commercial activity.

The discount applies to casual and regular hirers. Complete the online application form.

Please note: the regular hire and priority activity discount rates are exclusive of each other.
