SMOKING WITHIN RESIDENTIAL UNITS

Wednesday, August 26, 2020

Dear Residents

We have recently received more feedback from residents on the following matters:

  • Infiltration of second-hand smoke into their homes as a result of smoking by other residents and/or their guests at the windows or balconies in neighbouring apartments.
  • Litter found at balconies of their homes including cigarette butts and ashes, which were thrown out by other residents and/or their guests.

In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic where more residents are working from home, we wish to seek the understanding and cooperation of all residents in maintaining a harmonious and conducive living environment within Marina Bay Residences during this challenging period. We appeal to all smokers (residents and/or their guests) to be considerate towards their neighbours and to smoke away from their windows and balconies.

More importantly, smokers MUST dispose of their cigarette ashes and/or cigarette butts properly and not throw these out from their windows or balconies. Any cigarette ashes or cigarette butts which were thrown out from the windows or balconies that land inside the property of other residents is a fire risk. It also poses a danger and hazard to the life and property of other residents.

Smokers may wish to take note that the Criminal Law Reform Act (CLRA) was passed by Parliament on 6 May 2019 and took effect from 1 January 2020. The CLRA introduced a new offence for causing or substantially contributing to the risk of a fire. A person will be presumed to have substantially contributed to the risk of causing a fire unless the contrary is proven otherwise; if that fire occurs within 60 minutes at or in the vicinity of the place where the person threw, placed, dropped or deposited anything including a cigar, a cigarette or part thereof, that is likely to cause a fire. Those found guilty of the offence can be punished with up to seven years' jail, and/or fined under the Act.

In addition, for littering offences, a person convicted under the Environmental Public Health Act (EPHA), shall be liable to a maximum fine of $2,000 for the first conviction, $4,000 for the second conviction, and $10,000 for the third and subsequent convictions.

We look forward to the contribution of all residents in keeping Marina Bay Residences safe and harmonious.
