Parramatta. Bans on smoking and vehicles

The controversial smoking issue in alfreco cafes and restaurants is nearing its end with a resolution at a Parramatta City Council meeting to implement an anti-smoking ban in all outdoor dining areas on council-owned land (eg footpaths). The ban will take effect from January 1, 2011. Also, council will consider banning vehicles, in Church Street, between Phillip and Market streets – Parramata’s major dining precinct – on Friday and Saturday nights, possibly by December.
