Vaping could soon be banned in parts of the CBD as Melbourne City Council considers barring e-cigarettes in existing smoke-free zones.

Vaping will no longer be welcome in the city’s 11 no-smoking areas if the council passes an amendment next Tuesday night. Lord mayor Sally Capp said the move would bring the city in line with the rest of the state where e-cigarettes are included in smoking restrictions.

"E-cigarettes are relatively new but we know that there is a possible link to serious lung disease and growing evidence that e-cigarettes can lead young people to start smoking regular cigarettes," she said.
