Removing graffiti Click to get info
We will remove graffiti from private households and other private property only after the owner has given their permission.
The council has the power to issue a “defacement removal notice” to the property owner, which requires them to remove the graffiti within 28 days.
If they fail to do so, the council has the right to carry out the removal and recover the costs from the owner of the property.
