WC to go smoke-free

October 27, 2015 8:32 PM

Wiltshire Council is to ban smoking outdoors at all its sites, including County Hall and other offices, from next year. Staff smoking areas will be removed. The ban will also apply to members of the public, and to other organisations such as the police which use WC sites.

WC chiefs accept that smokers may loiter on the public highway outside of the offices, that enforcement will be difficult especially where members of the public are concerned, that littering may increase, that staff who smoke may become demoralised, and that it may be difficult to get police officers to obey the ban.

Nevertheless they intend to press ahead, subject to agreement by the Staffing Policy Committee.
