City backs ‘quit’ campaign

Kwinana Mayor Carol Adams said the City felt very passionate about health and wellbeing and combined a high-level strategic approach with targeted campaigns.

As part of the new campaign, the Healthy Lifestyles team will inform residents about recent changes to local and State laws which restrict smoking in many areas.

The City of Kwinana has a local law which enforces a strict no smoking policy on all of its premises.

State legislation restricts the display of tobacco products, packages and smoking implements at point of sale, smoking in outdoor eating areas, smoking within 10 metres of playground equipment in a public place and smoking in or on vehicles if someone under 17 years old is in or on the vehicle.

The campaign will support local businesses in promoting no smoking polices at their venues.

‘As part of this new campaign, residents may also begin seeing new signage around the City, promoting the ‘quit message’, a unique way of bringing the issue to the forefront of our minds,’ Cr Adams said.
