Healthy Lives, Healthy People: A Tobacco Control Plan for England highlighted the opportunities to extend smoke-free laws by creating environments free from second-hand smoke. This has since been included in Lincolnshire's Tobacco Control Plan. Initiatives such as smoke-free play areas can help to shape positive social norms in communities and discourage the use of tobacco among young people. With the support and engagement of local communities, Smoke Free Communities aims to introduce smoke-free enclosed play areas around Lincolnshire on a voluntary basis.
The objective is to protect children in their play environments, allowing them the opportunity to play in a smoke-free area. It also aims to prevent children taking up the habit when they are older.
