Council's Proposed Smokefree Auahi Kore Outdoor Areas Policy is now available for public consultation.

The proposed policy expands and strengthens the original policy's Smokefree district concept to include all Council-managed facilities, smokefree hire, smokefree events, allows for designated outdoor smoking areas, and gives effect to Council leadership and ability to advocate for a smokefree district.


Whanganui residents now have the opportunity to have their say. Submissions can be provided via the online submission form located, along with the proposed policy and supporting documents, at Council’s Have Your Say Page.


The consultation runs from Monday 29 May to Monday 26 June 2017.
