Graffiti spoils the local environment. It's criminal damage and can encourage other forms of anti-social behaviour - it can also be costly to remove.

Our response to graffiti problems

We aim to:

  • remove offensive graffiti within 24 hours
  • remove non-offensive graffiti within 4 working days

Our graffiti responsibilities

We can clear graffiti from public property, including:

  • council houses and other council buildings
  • council fences, walls or boundaries
  • ancient monuments and some memorials
  • city walls and bar walls
  • some bridges
  • play equipment in council play areas
  • street furniture, such as seats
  • dog bins and litter bins
  • bus stops
  • sign posts
  • bollards

Removing graffiti from private property is the responsibility of the property owner, so we're unable to help.
