As part of the City’s Public Health Plan, the City will be introducing smoke free Town Centres.

The project aims to reduce community exposure to environmental tobacco smoke and create healthy environments for people to live, work and play.

From 12 May to 31 August 2021, the community, businesses and public health stakeholders were invited to have their say on draft smoke free areas for Leederville, Mount Hawthorn, North Perth, Beaufort Street and William Street.

A total of 345 submissions were received with 61 percent of participants supporting the proposed smoke free areas. The smoke free areas have now been updated along with developing a draft Smoke Free Areas – Education and Enforcement Policy.
