The national ban on smoking in enclosed public places comes into force on 1 July. Communal areas of residential blocks are included in the ban so, from that day, we are obliged to prohibit smoking in any of the stairwells and landings at Ashworth Mansions. It is also a legal requirement to post no smoking signs at the entrance to each block. You can find out more about the new legislation at www.smokefreeengland.co.uk.
You are, of course, still free to smoke in your own flat but please do so with courtesy to other residents.
