Smoke Free – Playgrounds

A health prevention initiative has been developed after consultation to introduce Smoke Free Zones within ten metres from all children's play equipment providing a healthy environment for all.

The first stage of the Smoke Free Zone Signage Project has been delivered providing signage at all fully fenced children's playgrounds or play areas.
