Smoking Ban needed on Maungawhau
The news today highlights an item in a Council meeting on a report that will start to develop policy to ban smoking on all parks in Auckland.
The Friends of Maungawhau have been calling for a ban for some time on volcanic cones [the ban already exists in regional parks]
No smoking is necessary not only for health reasons but to stop the littering of cigarette butts.
No smoking is also a sign of respect to these important cultural sites. The ban will also help reduce the fire risk.
