Health and Safety

It is our aim to make sure that the Mt Eden Village Centre is as safe a place as possible, to minimise the risk of accidents. We have a commitment to observe all health and safety requirements as specified by relevant authorities.

Any potential hazard should be pointed out to the Centre Managers so that remedial action can be initiated as soon as possible. If this happens outside normal business hours it is to be recorded on an “incident form”, located in the Kitchen.

In the event of an accident, the Centre Managers will investigate to see if there are any actions which can be taken to prevent a repetition of the incident. 

A First Aid kit is provided and is located in the Kitchen. However, it is recommended that professional aid should be sought in the event of any injury. A defillbrator is located in the Kitchen but must be used by a person trained in its’ use.

In the event of an accident occurring during office hours, the Centre Manager should be notified immediately.

In the event of an accident outside office hours the Centre Manager will need details from those involved so that a report can be made to the Trust. An “incident form” is located in the Kitchen. The Centre Manager will keep an accurate record of all incidents and report regularly to the Trustees.

Waste Minimisation

We are a zero waste facility so we ask that you take all your rubbish with you. We are also committed to zero waste going to landfill so we ask you consider Reducing your use of single use items, Reuse as much equipment as you can and actively Recycle waste such as glass, metal, paper and plastic.

Talk to us about hiring the Kitchen as well when you plan your event in the Hall. The combined hire rate has been vastly reduced to support our Waste Minimisation Policy

Mobility Access and Toilets

There are two Mobility car parks outside the main entrance of the Village Centre on Ngauruhoe Street.  The Ramp to the main entrance is next to the car parks.

There are two easy access Toilets, one in the Foyer and one by the north external doors of the Hall.

Parking - Where can I park?

Parking on Ngauruhoe Street is limited to 60 minutes right outside the Centre or 120 minutes in a public carpark 100m away on Essex Street.  These parks are generally in high demand.  There is also a clearway on Mt Eden Road at 4.00-7.00pm.

However most streets coming off Mt Eden Road (including Ngauruhoe Street) have free all day parking further down each street within a short walk of the Centre.

We encourage using public or active transport when visiting the Village Centre. We have 2 bike parks by the main entrance. 

Setting up the room the night before

If we have no bookings you may set up your room the night before. You can have access from 7pm – 12 midnight with a charge for 3 hours use.


We ask you to leave your room and shared spaces as you found them. It is the hirer’s responsibility to clean up after their booking within the time of your booking.


As the Village Centre is in a residential area, noise from amplifiers and loudspeakers must be kept to a moderate level at all times. We ask that hirers turn systems to low by 11.00pm to facilitate packing up and cleaning by midnight. Failure to comply with this condition may result in the early closure of your function or confiscation of equipment.

Candle light and smoke machines

No open fires, smoke machines, naked flames (this includes candles and kerosene lamps), BBQs or spits are to be used inside The Mt Eden Village Centre. If the fire alarm is set off by the use of these items then a charge will be incurred.

Sound System - Do I have to bring my own sound system?

For bookings in the Church you can use our sound system including microphones. This is already set up and you are not able to change the settings. You may bring your own system if you prefer. We also have a portable Sony Home Audio System you can hire to use in any of the rooms. Please refer Venue Hire – Rooms and Pricing page for details.
