Ban Smoking at The Interchange and on The Redbrick & Install More Smoking Shelters

Smokers get sick of being told where they can and can't smoke - but do they realise that when they smoke they're forcing their own life choices on the people around them who breathe in their smoke?

By allowing people to smoke at the Highfield Interchange and on The Redbrick, you're allowing people to force their health choices onto me.

We need more dedicated spaces and shelters for smokers so that their rights aren't being infringed, but I have to use the bus interchange and walk past the redbrick. Why should I be forced to inhale smoke as I do?

I'm sorry for the delay in response, I have now taken up Emily's open You Make Changes. It is my understanding that the interchange is supposed to be a non-smoking area. I don't believe it will be possible to create a designated smoking shelter, but what I can do is talk to the appropriate department of the University and ensure that this is appropriately signposted and enforced, I know that this has happened around the entrance to Hartley and had a positive impact there. 

Thank you for your feedback!
