SMOKING could soon be prohib-
ited in outdoor dining areas along
Gawler's main street.
At Gawler Council's meeting last
night, elected members were expected
to consider lodging an application
with State Substance Abuse Minister
Jack Snelling to seek approval to im-
pose a smoking ban in alfresco dining
precincts along Murray Street.
The move comes ahead of the de-
velopment of outdoor dining facilities
in front of the Kingsford and Golden
Both hotels are currently undergo-
ing a redevelopment, which includes
the creation of alfresco areas.
New state laws introduced last year
give councils the power to declare an
outdoor area or event smoke-free.
The legislation builds on smoking
bans introduced in 2007 which stipu-
late smoking is prohibited in enclosed
outdoor public areas.
An area is considered 'enclosed'
when more than 70 per cent of the
total area is covered.
A council report shows elected
members are being asked to consider
the merits of declaring certain areas
"While the law directly affects ar-
eas used for dining by a restaurant or
café, no legislation exists for banning
smoking around entrances to hotels,
shopping centres and other business
establishments," it reads.
"Currently, such restrictions can
only be put into effect by the business
implementing their own smoke-free
policies in such areas."
The report recommends a ban
should be considered in the Murray
Street precinct, as "this is where the
majority of the demand for outdoor
"It is important to note that any
such move would be symbolic, given
that council staff cannot compel an
offender to provide their name and
address for the purposes of issuing a
fine," it reads.
The report also suggests inserting
smoking bans in liquor licence condi-
"In the event council wishes to pur-
sue this option, staff will investigate
the possibilities of linking an outdoor
smoking ban with liquor li-
cence conditions," it reads.
"This would put more
onus on licensees of prem-
ises to enforce the ban, and
would also allow Liquor Licensing
Inspectors and police to also monitor
such a ban."
However, Golden Fleece Hotel
owner Matthew Binns said it should
be up to business owners to decide
whether smoking is allowed in their
"I'm not in favour of regulation -- I
think let the market decide," he said.
Furthermore, Mr Binns said he
does not support any move to include
smoking bans in liquor licensing con-
"We have enough local and state
government regulations -- it's just an-
other imposition placed upon busi-
nesses," he said.
"If people don't come to my hotel
because of smoking, then I will make
a decision based upon that. Let the
If the council decides to further
pursue a smoking ban, the commu-
nity and businesses will be consulted
before a final decision is made.
The council discussed the matter af-
ter The Bunyip's print deadline.

zones in alfresco areas along Murray Street.

Wasleys cat cull
FERAL felines are again run-
ning rampant in Wasleys forc-
ing Light Regional Council to
undertake another cat cull.
Earlier this month, the council
set a number of cat traps in the
town to capture and kill wild cats
It is the second time over the
past 18 months the council has
conducted a cull.
In April last year, a three-month
cat-trapping exercise resulted in
17 felines being caught and eutha-
However, council's regulatory
services manager James Miller said
the issue has arisen again, prompt-
ing council to take further action.
"The program is necessary as
there are now kittens running
about due to cats not being de-
sexed," he said.
"The trapping program is de-
signed to reduce stray and feral cat
numbers which will, in turn, re-
duce the number of kittens born.
"Unfortunately, it is almost im-
possible to catch all the stray cats
and even more difficult to get cat
owners to desex their cats."
Mr Miller said cat owners are
encouraged to desex their pets.
Cats are an issue due to irre-
sponsible cat owners not desexing
their pets," he said.
Unless we can catch all the stray
cats and cat owners desex their cats
the problem will always exist."
Furthermore, cat owners in
Wasleys are urged to ensure their
cats are identifiable so council can
return them to owners if they are
caught in the traps.
The Dog and Cat Management
Act makes it clear that a cat needs
to be identifiable, that means ei-
ther collar and name tag or micro-
chip or both," he said.
"If they are not identifiable, they
are considered to be stray or feral
and can be euthanased."
Water features can add an extra
dimension to any garden.
