Slaughter-house Ordinance 1848

Slaughter-house Ordinance 1848

This 1848 article in the Wellington Independent newspaper refers to an ordinance enacted to control the 'present practice of killing animals in various parts of the town'. In new and rapidly growing settlements such as early Wellington, the provision and control of vital facilities such as slaughterhouses, sewers, jails and roads was often the main incentive to form institutions of local government.
