Graffiti


Graffiti is an illegal activity that creates a negative impression of an area and can be very unsightly. We will investigate and remove graffiti where possible.

We will investigate and remove graffiti from accessible areas which are in public view. In some circumstances, it may not be possible to remove the graffiti because of access problems or due to the fabric of the building. 

Offensive graffiti will be removed within 24 hours of notification wherever possible. Other graffiti will be removed within three working days wherever possible.

If the graffiti is on your property and you request removal, it will be necessary for you to sign a disclaimer form before any removal work is carried out.
