Smoking could be banned on streets

1st July 2011

The Buckinghamshire town of Stony Stratford is considering banning smoking from its streets.

Councillor Paul Bartlett has proposed a new bylaw to outlaw smoking in any public place in the town and if the plan is approved by the town council later this month, smokers who light up cigarettes in public in the town could face on-the-spot fines. Mr Bartlett said the town is blighted by cigarette butts, though local publicans fear a total ban on smoking would have an impact on their trade.
