No Smoking In Playgrounds and Public Places Policy

In the interest of the health of our local community and environment, Council has adopted a draft smoke-free environment policy for the purpose of public consultation.

The policy proposes that there be no smoking:

  • Within ten metres of all children’s playground equipment.
  • On all playing fields, sporting grounds and sporting facilities (i.e. swimming pools
  • outdoor sports centres).
  • At all events run or sponsored by Council
  • In alfresco dining areas on public land
  • In Council’s pedestrian malls/plazas
  • Within ten metres of Council owned or managed buildings including balconies or covered areas of those buildings
  • In all bushland, parks and reserves
  • Within all covered bus stops and taxi ranks
  • Within enclosed Council car parks.

Enquires may be directed to the Customer Service Centre on 9879 9400. Written comment, addressed to the General Manager, will be received until 4.00pm Friday 11 May 2012.
