Smokefree Action Plan 2019-2025
Taupō is a smoke and vape free district, under the Taupō District Council Smokefree Action Plan launched in 2019.
The plan supports the Government’s goal for New Zealand to become a smokefree country by 2025 and covers public places across the district, including the lakefront, that will now be smoke and vape free.
While it's not a by-law, the plan aims to use education and awareness to reduce smoking and vaping.
2020 Taupo-nui-a-Tia Action Plan
The Taupo community has identified 12 key values they want to protect for the future of Lake Taupo. These values form the foundation for this plan. All of us are responsible for key actions in the 2020 Taupo-nui-a-Tia Action Plan and are working together to protect the Lake for future generations.
The strategy represents three years of commitment from the following groups: 2020 Joint Management Group and Project Team, 2020 Forum, Tuwharetoa Maori Trust Board, Environment Waikato, Taupo District Council, Department of Conservation, Department of Internal Affairs and the Lakes and Waterways Action Group.
