Smoke-Free Town Centres

The City of Vincent has introduced Fresh Air - You're Welcome: the Smoke-Free Town Centres project as part of its Public Health Plan.

This project aims to reduce community exposure to environmental tobacco smoke and create healthy environments, free from smoking and vaping in our entertainment precincts.

Parts of North Perth, Mt Hawthorn, Leederville, William Street and Beaufort Street are now smoke-free.

Normalise smoke-free

A smoke-free environment is the future of urban centres and we want the City of Vincent to become a leader in healthy environments in WA.

Reduce second-hand smoke

We want to protect the community, including children and young people from harmful effects of second-hand smoke.

Reduce the drivers for smoking uptake

Less exposure to smoking behaviour in our community can reduce uptake of smoking among young people and adults.

Reduce litter from cigarette butts

Cigarette butts contain cellulose acetate. By reducing the litter from cigarette butts, we want to reduce their negative impact on our environment.

Create healthy and safe environment

By protecting our people and our environment, we’ll create a better and healthier living space for our community to live, work and play.
