Auahi kore smokefree and vapefree policy

Council's smokefree and vapefree guidelines for public areas in the city.

Through this policy, the Council aims to improve the health of the city, and contribute to the government's Smokefree 2025 goal. The Council has no powers to enforce the policy, so it is not a ban. Instead, the policy proposes to encourage people to refrain from smoking and vaping.

The current policy was adopted in December 2020. A review will be planned from 2024-25.
