Smoke-Free Henley SquareFrom 12 September 2016, smoking is banned in Henley Square.  Strong community support was received when Council consulted on declaring Henley Square smoke-free.  As a result the State Government passed laws creating Henley Square as a permanent smoke-free area.  Signs are placed at the boundary of the smoke-free area and a number of butt bins are installed to allow for the responsible disposal of cigarette butts.
