West Ryde Plaza now a permanent Smoke Free Zone
Published on 18 February 2020
Smoking will be prohibited at West Plaza on a permanent basis, following the completion of a successful trial.
The City of Ryde undertook the six-month trial between 1 July 2019 and 1 January 2020.
During this period, Council received 15 individual responses to the trial, with 14 indicating support for West Ryde Plaza being designated a Smoke Free Zone.
Based on the positive response, the Smoke Free Zone at West Ryde will now be implemented permanently.
The City of Ryde will now consider expanding the Smoke Free Zones to other town centres and locations.
A section of Rowe Street East in Eastwood will be the next location to trial a Smoke Free Zone. This is anticipated to commence in March 2020.
