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.
