Graffiti and Vandalism
 
 
Graffiti and vandalism are illegal, anti-social activities that can create a negative impression of an area and contribute to people's fear of crime.

Graffiti

The term graffiti can be applied to any scribbles, patterns, tags, scratchings and etchings made to walls and other surfaces. Whilst some can be artistic, it is still illegal and some graffiti is very offensive in nature.  

If you would like any unsightly graffiti removed from Council Property or advice on graffiti removal , please use the contact details below. We aim to respond within 48 hours if it is on public property or highway.

If you have graffiti on your private property, it is your responsibility to remove it as soon as possible. The Council can offer advice on how to do this.

Offenders can be prosecuted under the Criminal Damage Act 1971. The penalties if found guilty include a jail sentence if the offender is over the age of 18 years, a detention and training order for young offenders or a heavy fine.

To report graffiti, please contact Customer Services.


Vandalism

If you would like to report any acts of vandalism to Council property, private property or street furniture, please do so here or ring Customer Services on 023 8028 5000. Alternatively, contact your local police station.
