Since the introduction of the legislation in July, just 14 complaints have been received and three written warnings issued for businesses failing to prevent smoking.
Councillor Deborah Reynolds, who is responsible for housing and health at HDC, said: "I would like to congratulate the council officers involved because much of the success is down to the excellent work carried out by them, and in particular the support given in advance of the ban, to help businesses be prepared."
