Smokes ban for malls

December 1 will see smoking banned in Hay and Murray Street malls and in Forrest Place.

Perth city council’s smoking ban has been in the pipelines for about a year. In the first six months puffers will be issued cautions, then from June 1 they’ll be fined.

“Our hope is that people will consider the health of others, themselves and their wallet, and butt out before we have to fine them,” says lord mayor Lisa Scaffidi. “We and our environment don’t deserve to choke on their harmful habit.”
