Smoking in Macquarie Mall – your chance to have a say

Liverpool residents have a chance to say whether smoking should be allowed in Macquarie Mall

In its March meeting, Liverpool Council resolved to survey residents to find out their views on smoking in Macquarie Mall.

Liverpool Mayor Wendy Waller said smoking in a public place like Macquarie Mall was a divisive issue, and the views of the public would help Council decide whether to consider a ban.

“The survey also gives residents a chance to tell us what they like about the mall and what might need improvement,” Mayor Waller said.

“I would encourage residents, particularly those who use the mall regularly, to visit Liverpool Listens and fill out the survey.

“The more people take part, the more the results will help Council come to a decision.”

The results of the survey will be presented to Council, along with other information requested at the March meeting, including Council’s regulatory powers in this area and options for enforcing a ban.

“We will also talk to business owners in the mall to get a sense of how a ban might affect them,” Mayor Waller said.
