Over the next 3 months 400,000 car park tickets will be purchased in the Epping Forest District. Environmental Services have used the advertising on the reverse of the ticket to promote the change in smoking legislation for enclosed or substantially enclosed public places and workplaces, which includes work vehicles.
The change takes place on 1July 2007. The new law is intended to substantially reduce the exposure to second hand smoke. It is estimated that the new law will save thousands of lives over the next decade. A smoke free England will ensure a healthier environment, so everyone can socialise, relax, travel, shop and work free from secondhand smoke.
Over the next month businesses across the district will be receiving direct from Smoke Free England their free guidance and free notices that must be displayed.

For individuals wishing to make this their opportunity to quit smoking, help is on hand. The local NHS runs a variety of smoking cessation services including support groups and individual support. Smokers who have support when quitting are four times more likely to stay quitters and advice is available through the NHS Stop Smoking Team on 01279 827866.
