GUEST OBSERVER

In NSW strata committees have the authority to ban smoking by introducing a smoke-free by-law.

Introducing a smoke-free by-law is the most effective way to eliminate the health, legal and financial risks associated with smoking in apartment complexes. 

To help strata committees advocate for a smoke-free by-law, and to provide guidance on the development and implementation of a smoke-free by-law Cancer Council has developed the Achieving Smoke-free Apartments toolkit. The toolkit summarises the health, financial and legal benefits of smoke-free apartment complexes, the steps that can be taken to achieve smoke-free living, and examples of what to include in a smoke-free by-law.
