(E) Retail tobacco stores in operation prior to December 7, 2006.

The Smoke-free Environment Act stipulates that a 'public place' means a place or vehicle that the public, or a section of the public, is entitled to use, or that is open to the public or a section of the public, whether by payment of money, by virtue of membership of a club or body, or otherwise. xxiii A public place is considered to be 'enclosed' if it has a roof or ceiling and is completely or substantially enclosed. xxiv The Smoke-free Environment Regulation sets out guidelines for determining what an enclosed public place is, and when a covered outside area is considered 'substantially enclosed'. A public place is considered to be substantially enclosed if the total area of the ceiling and wall surfaces is more than 75 per cent of the total notional ceiling and wall area. xxv The Smoke-free Environment Regulation provides further detail regarding how to calculate the ‘total notional ceiling and wall area’. xxvi
