Graffiti

Graffiti is an illegal, anti-social activity that creates a negative impression of an area and contributes to people's fear of crime.

We deal with requests for graffiti removal from council-owned property, with the highest priority given to removing racist and obscene material.

What you need to tell us

  • The exact location of the graffiti
  • If the graffiti is racist/offensive
  • Whether it is private property
  • Whether you are able to help us identify those responsible

We aim to:

  • Remove racist/offensive graffiti from highways and City Council owned property, including children's play equipment within parks within 24 hours.
  • Remove other graffiti from highways and City Council owned property, including children's play equipment within parks within 10 working days.

If the graffiti is on private property, there will be a charge and a disclaimer will need to be signed by the property owner in respect of any possible damage that may occur during graffiti removal.

Please help us by:

  • Reporting all instances of graffiti on public buildings/signs
  • Helping us identify those responsible
