Smokefree Policy Review

>>Click here for feedback<<
Council is seeking your feedback on a proposed Smokefree Kaipara Policy. Council currently has a Smokefree Parks and Playgrounds Policy in place. This policy aims to educate Kaipara’s communities and visitors to not smoke around TamÔriki/children. The policy helps to provide safe and healthy spaces and de-normalise smoking for our TamÔriki/children. The proposed Smokefree Kaipara Policy wishes to expand Council’s current policy to provide a large number of areas and public places where both smoking and vaping are discouraged. This is to ensure greater protection for our TamÔriki/children. Both the current and proposed policies support the central governments target of being smokefree by 2025.  The Proposed Policy can be viewed on the right of this webpage, at Council Offices and at community libraries at Kaiwaka and Maungaturoto.

In August 2018, Council established a panel, being Councillors Curnow, Joyce-Paki and Wethey, to consider submissions and make recommendations to Council. A meeting of the panel will be held on Monday 12 November 2018, and the agenda can be found here.
