Graffiti removal

Keeping our walls clear

Graffiti is illegal and expensive to remove. We're committed to removing and preventing graffiti in our city, but we need your help to do it. Help us to stay on top of graffiti vandalism by taking measures to prevent it and, if it does occur, by making sure it is cleaned as quickly as possible.

What is graffiti?

Graffiti refers to any writing, painting or drawing on either public or private property done without the consent of the owner. Graffiti is illegal and incurs costs to council through removal and prevention measures.

What are the effects of graffiti?

Graffiti is a crime that affects us all. It can lower property values, make people feel unsafe, reduce business patronage and encourage other types of crime.
Most graffiti occurs on exposed walls and fences and is usually in the form of messages in letters or images, written in spray paint, permanent marker or even etched into the surface with a sharp instrument. Graffiti vandals have no respect for private or community property and no regard for the negative impact of their actions.
