    Someone said if we can tolerate a person taking loudly next door, having a party etc etc then we can tolerate people smoking. I disagree. I can tolerate mostly anything but I won't just tolerate someone putting my health at risk because they want to feed their addiction. Second hand smoke is disgusting and harmful.

    Due to the close nature of community title living, I think it should be banned on balconies to protect the health of others.

    [QUOTE=katezane;6587269

    While we are at it why don't we ban bbq's on balconies (I hate the smell). Hanging washing in balconies (looks messy). Going out on the balcony altogether (it's too noisy for people who don't have kids).

    Seriously![/QUOTE]

    actually hanging washing on balconies is already prohibited in strata units in NSW

    Banning Smoking inside can be a special condition of the lease and we ask
    In our applications are tenants smokers, some landlords care, some don't but as a maintenance issue we recommend they don't allow smokers inside as smell is very hard to get out and I've seen many cigarette burns in carpets before , the tenants complaining about balcony smoke are mainly people with kids so I can understand that

    Indeed. A lot of body corporate bylaws in Queensland limit hanging washing on visible balconies, and are quite restrictive in other ways.

    There is NO safe level of passive smoking. Smoking should be banned everywhere that it could affect someone without their consent(i am a smoker too)

    I would love a smoking ban in our complex of 95 apartments- I swear there's a smoke magnet that draws it all in our direction!
    We never open our windows because I don't want my kids breathing in second hand smoke.

    Another one of these threads Yes lets keep taking smoker's money in taxes that would way outweigh any medical treatment they could ever require, but take all their rights away. Bc really, smokers are 2nd class citizens that are constantly discriminated against. That's ok though. The habit is gross

    Let's ban parties, they are no good for health as they keep you awake all night. Studies also show children that see regular alcohol consumption are more likely to develop drinking problems themselves. BBQ's might make vegetarians sick. In fact no alcohol should be consumed in your home full stop. Millions of studies show the link between drinking, DV, cancer, child abuse, accidents. No more singing. Hearing Adele gives me a headache. No children in the backyard, they are noisy, see first point. No watching movies, again... noisy... shift workers anyone? they could have an accident on the way to work from tiredness. No having an argument.... ever. That could damage my child's mental health. No animals... may carry germs like worms which may make us sick.

    No offense meant to anyone here, but I find it weird people complain about a little waft of smoke yet live in the city lol you all realise living in an environment with 2 million cars, trains, trams etc would be far more damaging right? that's not a dig at city people, but really, pollution levels are pretty high and bad for your health.

    If you understood how much more carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide was toxic to our health than cigarettes you would never step foot into a carpark with your kids again. Smoking on balconies is the least of our problems. BBQs will harm your health they produce toxic fumes that are a huge cause of cancer and other illnesses.
