Graffiti is an illegal, anti-social activity that creates a negative impression of an area and contributes to people's fear of crime.
We are responsible for the removal of graffiti from council owned buildings and property. We are not responsible for removal of graffiti from privately owned buildings and property.
In partnership with the Probation Service, Safer CCBC are a team responsible for developing new initiatives to reduce crime, disorder and anti-social behaviour in the area which includes graffiti removal.
If you discover graffiti, you can report it to us in one of the following ways
Alternatively, you can call Waste Strategy and Operations on 01443 866533.
When reporting graffiti please give details of the exact location, the extent of the graffiti, the surface affected and whether it is of a racist or offensive nature.
Those caught causing graffiti can be prosecuted under the Criminal Damage Act 1971. If the damage caused is less than £5,000 the maximum fine is £5,000. Young offenders may be given a community service order.
