Councillors in Derbyshire have been asked to approve a consultation on increasing the number of smoke-free spaces across the county.
The cabinet will meet next week to discuss plans to canvas people's opinions about banning smoking in places such as children's playgrounds, bus shelters and outside primary schools.
The council says it wants to support people who want to quit and protect the public from passive smoking.
Spaces the public will be consulted on include:
- Infant, junior and primary school gates
- Children's play areas/play grounds
- Children's sports clubs
- Adults' sports clubs
- Sports stadiums
- Bus and taxi stands
- Outside Derbyshire County Council, district and borough council buildings
- Leisure centre entrances
- Skate parks
Cabinet Member for Health and Communities, Councillor Carol Hart said:
If approved the consultation will take place later this year for eight weeks.
