We invite you to share your views on The Draft Smoke Free Council Facilities Policy.
The draft smoke free policy proposes that smoking will not be permitted on the grounds or in any structure of any council owned facility, park, reserve, sporting facility, or community centre.
Currently council facilities have several different restrictions regarding smoking – from smoking being banned from a whole site, to no smoking allowed within five metres of an entrance, to smoking being allowed on parks and reserves except within 10 metres of playgrounds.
The smoke free policy provides a rationale and framework for the management of smoking across all council owned facilities.
We are now seeking your view on the overall draft policy and the level of support for making council facilities smoke free.
This engagement starts on the 22 October and finishes 5pm 12 November 2018
