What role can local authorities play in tobacco 'end-game' policies in New Zealand?

In March 2011 the New Zealand government agreed to the recommendation that it 'aim for tobacco consumption and smoking prevalence to be halved by 2015 across all demographics, followed by a longer-term goal of making New Zealand a smoke-free nation by 2025' (New Zealand Parliament, 2011, p.4). 'Smoke-free' is defined in this instance as a very low prevalence of smoking and minimal availability of tobacco, rather than prohibition of smoking.
