Graffiti is words or drawings that are written, painted, sprayed or scratched on the surface of any property. Graffiti is illegal and we take it seriously.
We aim to remove any offensive, abusive or racist graffiti within 24 hours from when it was reported. We will do this free of charge.
We can arrange the removal of other (non-offensive) graffiti from private residences or business premises for a cost which will be assessed on an individual basis. The property owner will need to sign a statement of indemnity.
Graffiti removal notices
We can serve graffiti removal notices on any privately owned buildings or street furniture. Any offenders identified who have carried out any defacement will either be prosecuted through the courts or issued with a fixed penalty notice of £75 for each area of defacement.
