Request removal of graffiti

We aim to remove offensive, racist or obscene graffiti within 24 hours and non-obscene graffiti such as tags within three days.

You can report graffiti on property if it:

Start report

What happens next

When you report graffiti:

  1. The owner of the affected property completes an agreement form - When a report of graffiti is received, the owner of the affected property is asked to complete an agreement form. This authorises our contractors to remove graffiti from the property.
  2. Our contractors attend the site - Once we have permission to remove the graffiti, a works instruction is raised for the contractor to attend the site. Photographs are taken before and after removal, which can be used to help the police secure a successful prosecution. If the graffiti is above five metres or there are access restrictions, we will take steps to remove the graffiti as quickly as possible, although this may fall outside our normal target times.

If we cannot remove the graffiti

In some cases we may not be able to remove the graffiti but we will try to advise you of the situation as soon as possible, once we have investigated all possibilities. In these circumstances you may wish to seek advice from your building insurers.
