Environmental Health Services fees and charges

Here are the fees we charge for Environmental Health Services, including inspections, permits and licences.

All fees and charges include GST. Effective 1 July 2023 to 30 June 2024.

Environmental health charges are imposed under Regulation 7 of the Health (Registration of Premises) Regulations 1966 to recover the cost to the Palmerston North City Council of providing environmental health services. 

Fixed charges

These charges cover the standard cost to Council in carrying out the work listed. However, additional charges may apply depending on the circumstances, such as additional inspections, change of ownership or interpretation services that may be incurred by the Council during or after processing the application, or carrying out related inspections.




Other fees

These fees may be applicable to an application or inspection, or may be applied as a single charge.



The Environmental Protection Services Manager is authorised to remit, reduce or refund any of these fees or part of a fee in any particular case where there are special grounds for doing so.
