Yes, you can smoke in your own property. However we ask you kindly not to when a council employee is visiting or working. If you do not refrain from smoking within the room our employees are working, they have the right to leave your property, and any incomplete repair, if you refuse to stop when asked.
All of our employees have been instructed not to smoke within your home to help protect your health.
It is against the law to smoke in any communal areas.
If you are interested in quitting smoking why not visit the NHS website at http://www.nhs.uk/smokefree. The site lists free local NHS support services. You can also telephone the free NHS Smoking Helpline on 0800 022 4332.
