    I'd want smoking banned in as many ways as possible, if not at all. So yep. Ban them on the balconies.

    Yep, ban it.
    Our unit used to fill with smoke when our gross neighbours all smoked!

    I think we would be crossing the line of what 'big brother' tell us we can do if we go banning legal activities on the property someone pays for !

    Smoking should be banned altogether. Seriously.

    If you live in a body corporate (I do) there are rules even within your own property that should allow everyone to live 'peacefully' without impacting anyone else. So yep... A smoker on a balcony affects the neighbours so it should be banned. I would vote a big yes if our body corporate put it through for vote!

    So we should ban people from smoking everywhere but their bedroom? What if they have children? Should they live in a house where people smoke inside? Because you know.. its all well and good to say well if they were good parents they wouldn't.. but its an addiction.. one btw which the government has enabled for quite a long time.. they can't just wave a magic wand now and the problem goes away. It's a physical addiction on par with heroin!! If its going to be illegal for smokers to smoke in their own backyard or balcony in case a near by resident smells it then its time to just make it illegal and for the government to roll out some good programmes for users.. but I guess that would cost money when its much cheaper to just make laws and fine people

    Yes I am with this. It's their property, they can use it for any legal purposes they like. I guess it depends on each body corp but if I were a landlord I would worry that it would lead to my tenants smoking inside the property.

    I believe smoking is banned inside rental properties.

    If they ban smoking I should hope they ban outside use of balconies after 9pm, cause quite frankly a group of people sitting out on their balcony drinking and carrying on till all hours is far more offensive to me than a 5 min waft of someone else smoke. We'd all be up in arms about being banned from partying or talking on our balcony and both those activities directly affect your neighbours too.

    It's crossing the line IMO and opens up for a whole lot of other restrictions to be put on people's personal living spaces.

    I'd ban smoking from the whole country if I could.. It's disgusting and invades my right of fresh air.

    Hey, you asked! Lol
