SMOK­ING BAN

Rodney Times - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

Smok­ing at beaches and out­door din­ing ar­eas will soon be a thing of the past in Auckland. Auckland Coun­cil ap­proved a pol­icy on Tues­day to in­crease the num­ber of smoke­free out­door spa­ces. Beaches, al fresco din­ing ar­eas and ur­ban cen­tres would be stamped smoke­free from Novem­ber, un­der the city’s Smoke­free Pol­icy. Restau­rants with foot­path din­ing ar­eas said the move would be un­ques­tion­ably good for peo­ple’s health but an­tic­i­pated a back­lash from some smok­ing pa­trons.
