Smokers are being banned from lighting up on balconies in a move that could soon be extended to apartments in the Gold Coast region ofQueensland,Australia, according to a story by Jessica Elder for the Gold Coast Bulletin.
In effect, many high-rise buildings would become smoke-free.
Buildings inMainBeach, Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach already have bans in place and many more are said to be considering implementing non-smoking regulations.
Elder wrote that precedents had been set in other states, including New South Wales, where many Sydney buildings enforced blanket bans on smoking.
