If the graffiti is on private property
If the graffiti is on private property, you’ll need to report it to the property owner.
If the graffiti is on:
Street furniture, such as:
- telephone boxes
- bus shelters
- telecommunication boxes
Or on property belonging to:
- statutory undertakers
- education institutions
Then we will forward your report to the relevant organisation responsible for their assets and property.
If no action is taken within a reasonable time, we have powers to require the removal of the graffiti by serving a Defacement Removal Notice.
