Smoke Free Outdoor Areas in Banyule
As smoking is one of the leading causes of preventable deaths and illness in Banyule,
Council is seeking community feedback on options and ideas for reducing the impact from smoking in outdoor areas.
Prohibiting smoking in outdoor areas:
- reduces people's exposure to second-hand smoke and its associated harm;
- helps make smoking less visible and less socially acceptable, so children are less likely to start smoking;
- supports smokers by reducing their consumption and supports those who are trying to quit;
- reduces butt litter; and
- improves the overall amenity of areas for the community.
We especially want your feedback on smoking in public places such as playgrounds, parks, outdoor dining areas, sporting grounds, selected business districts/areas and at entrances to schools or public buildings.
As part of the consultation process, Council will also consider whether it is appropriate or if there is a need to introduce a local law to enforce smoke bans.
If you have something to say about this issue please complete the appropriate following online survey.
