From 1 November 2018, a smoke-free precinct will exist in the Ulverstone CBD. The smoke-free designation applies to the following areas:
- Reibey Street
- King Edward Street, between Reibey Street and Patrick Street
- Alexandra Road, between Reibey Street and Main Street.
CLICK HERE to view a map of the area.
The initiative builds on current State legislation which bans smoking in enclosed spaces and workplaces; at sporting venues and near children’s playgrounds; and at outdoor dining places or near entrances to restaurants.
Existing Tasmania-wide legislation has been in place for some time regarding smoke-free areas as part of the Public Health Act 1997. You can view a copy of the legislation by CLICKING HERE.
Ulverstone becomes the first shopping precinct in Tasmania, and only the second in Australia, to become smoke-free. The historic initiative will make visiting the CBD a much healthier and sweeter-smelling experience, not only for shoppers and tourists, but retail staff as well.
