A proposal to ban smoking along the streets making up the city's Golden Mile - Lambton Quay, Willis Street, Manners Street/Manners Mall and Courtenay Place.
The majority of people walking down Wellington's very busy Golden Mile object to having to negotiate second-hand smoke from smokers walking in front of them or sitting outside cafes. A lunch break outside the office can turn into a not so pleasant experience.
Let's make the Golden Mile more attractive to city workers, visitors/tourists, etc.
It has been shown that official enforcement is not required after smoking bans are put in place; they become self-policed by the general public.
