Graffiti is a form of vandalism involving the deliberate defacing of property by the painting or spraying of words, slogans, pictures or symbols. Graffiti is normally associated with the defacing of walls and flat areas but other items such as road signs, benches and bus shelters are often vandalised in a similar manner.
Graffiti is usually associated with antisocial behaviour and can lead to increased concerns about crime.
We take every occurrance of graffiti seriously and are actively seeking to prosecute as many offenders as possible.
Wherever possible, offensive graffiti reported to the Council will be prioritised for removal by the specialist cleansing team within 24 hours.
The Council is offering a £100 reward to anyone who provides information leading to enforcement action or even prosecution of anyone committing graffiti.
Any graffiti greater in size than four square metres, or located at high level involving specialist equipment to remove, will be assessed by Street Services and discussed with the property owner. Subsequent removal may be undertaken by our in-house team or a specialist external contractor for which a charge will be made.
If you would like any unsightly graffiti removed from Council property or street furniture please call Customer Services on 01202 451199 or email Cleansing Services.|
