Reporting Graffiti

If you see someone tagging phone 111 immediately. The Police have a better chance of taking legal action if they can catch an offender in the act.

If you see offensive graffiti, i.e. racist or contains foul language, please call Council immediately so we can arrange for it to be removed as quickly as possible.

If your residential and small business property is eligible for the free removal service, please contact the Council call centre on 07 577 7000 to arrange removal.
