SINGAPORE: Nee Soon South has taken the lead to introduce Singapore's first community-initiated smoke-free zone.
The one-year pilot project is aimed at improving the air quality in the communal spaces of Nee Soon South Zone D.
Under the project, six Designated Smoking Points (DSPs) are marked out in the area.
Smokers are urged to keep to the six points when they smoke in public in the zone.
The arrangement comes on top of smoking restrictions that are required by law.
With the support of the National Environment Agency (NEA) and the Health Promotion Board (HPB), MP for Nee Soon GRC Lee Bee Wah led some 200 residents and grassroots leaders in the launch of the project on Sunday morning .
A joint statement said the project is part of the constituency's broader initiative to de-normalise tobacco use in the community.
