Napier City and Hastings District Councils Smokefree and Vapefree Policy

We are proposing a few small changes to our shared Smokefree and Vapefree Policy.

Thank you to the 707 residents and 105 businesses and organisations who provided valuable feedback during pre-engagement earlier this year. We have carefully considered this feedback and taken a fresh look at the shared Policy. 

We have had a shared Policy since 2015, created in response to central government’s goal of a Smokefree Aotearoa New Zealand by 2025.

The 2022 Policy will be adopted by both Councils later this year.

The proposed changes include:

  • Clarifying the Councils’ responsibility to promote community wellbeing through improving social, economic, environmental and cultural wellbeing.

View the full proposed updated Smokefree and Vapefree Policy here.

Sorry, this consultation is now closed and we are no longer accepting submissions. All feedback will be considered when Napier City and Hastings City Councils come together to deliberate on the outcome of the proposed changes.

Do you want to hear from us more often and have your say on other Napier projects?
