Smoking is now off the menu
Tuesday 01 August 2017
Changes to the Tobacco Act 1987 mean that smoking is now banned in all commercial outdoor dining areas.
When is smoking outdoors still allowed?
Smoking is still permitted in outdoor drinking areas on the conditions:
- There is no roof or there is a minimum of 25% notional wall area open
- No food other than snacks are able to be consumed in the area.
- There is a 4 metre buffer zone or a barrier at least 2.1 metres high between the drinking area and any dining area.
Remember - If you’re a smoker please remember to bin your butts so Yarra’s streets stay clean and tidy
