Learn more about our projects and smoke-free areas across the city.
The City of Melbourne is committed to creating healthy and safe environments for everyone by reducing smoking in our city and supporting people to quit. One of the ways we do this is by creating smoke-free areas, where people are protected from second-hand smoke.
Our most recent smoke-free area was McKillop Street in the CBD, where smoking had been identified as an issue by community. We think making McKillop Street smoke-free, in line with nearby Equitable Place and Collins Way as smoke-free areas, is a step in the right direction to improve the health and liveability of this area for residents and business owners.
