Horizons Regional Council manages the natural resources of the Horizons (Manawatu-Wanganui) region.
We are responsible for:
- managing use of natural resources – land, water, air, coast and habitat protection
- regulatory management (resource consents)
- emergency management, biosecurity, Tb vector control and flood protection
- passenger transport, transport planning, road safety and Total Mobility.
While your city or district council is responsible for community services in your area, like road maintenance, libraries, recreation areas, land use and subdivisions, your regional council manages the natural resources and does so across several city/district council boundaries. Because these activities often cover large geographic areas, Horizons manages them for the benefit of the whole region. Although our roles are different, we work closely with city and district councils on some issues.
