Southampton City Council is consulting on a draft, five-year, combined Tobacco, Alcohol and Drugs Strategy (2023 – 2028).

This combined Draft Tobacco, Alcohol and Drugs Strategy articulates how we propose to reduce the harm to people who use tobacco, alcohol and drugs, as well as harms to people around them, and harms across the City of Southampton as a whole. It covers everyone who lives, works in, or visits the city; it covers every person, every community and every place in the city – even the council itself.

We would like to hear your thoughts on the draft strategy and any impacts or alternative suggestions you would like us to consider.

Together we can make a difference.

Your experiences and views are very important, this is your opportunity to have your say and to guide the work we are planning.

Please complete the following questionnaire to read more about the draft strategy and to give us your views


The consultation closes on 4 September 2022.
