Smoke-free signs and bins
Signage has been installed on The Parade, at entry points and in prominent positions, to show the area where smoking is prohibited.
A number of butt bins will be installed on adjoining streets to The Parade, to allow for the responsible disposal of cigarette butts.
The Council does not intend to issue fines under the Act; instead it has opted to take an educational approach to this initiative. Signage will be displayed on The Parade to show the area where smoking is prohibited.
In early 2018, the City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters lodged an application with the Minister for Mental Health and Substance Abuse to permanently designate the section of The Parade between the eastern side of Osmond Terrace and western side of Portrush Road as a smoke-free area under Section 52 of the Tobacco Products Regulation Act 1997.
This application was successful with the Minister granting approval to prohibit smoking on this section of The Parade as of Saturday 1 December 2018.
