Parramatta Smoking ban

Following extensive community and business consultation, Parramatta City Council has banned smoking in all alfresco dining areas it controls or owns, starting from 1 May 2012. More than 900 participants took part in the survey, which found that 68 per cent of residents and 60 per cent of diners supported the smoking ban. The majority of businesses surveyed didn’t support the ban The new policy will also see smoking prohibited within 10 metres of children’s playgrounds, sporting fields, sports facilities and bus and taxi stands.
