Smoking in Public Areas

Housing NSW does not allow smoking in enclosed common areas within Housing NSW properties. Smoking is allowed inside the private areas of residential units, townhouses, villas or houses.

By banning smoking in internal common areas in our properties, Housing NSW is voluntarily complying with the standards set by the Smoke-Free Environmental Act 2000.

The intention of this policy is to reduce the harmful effects of passive smoking on residents, visitors, staff and tradespeople using enclosed areas within Housing NSW properties.
