Smoking ban on Bayside’s beaches

The Bayside community has driven the proposal to introduce a smoking ban on Bayside’s beaches. Council has responded and intends to introduce a smoking ban which is proposed to apply to the sand areas of all Bayside’s beaches, including Ricketts Point Marine Sanctuary and the Brighton Dunes.

The smoking ban will help reduce the amount of cigarette butt litter which makes its way from Bayside’s beaches into Port Phillip Bay. Reduced litter in the environment will help protect our important marine environments. It will also the improve the public health and wellbeing of our community and visitors.

You can have your say on the smoking ban and the areas where it is proposed:
