Graffiti Management Policy

D2-05 Graffiti Management Policy (167KB)

Unwanted graffiti can seriously affect property values, community well-being, and civic pride.

With the active cooperation of local residents, we endeavour to quickly remove graffiti from Council and privately-owned properties. It is important to send out a strong message that Council facilities are well maintained and cared for, and to minimise any satisfaction that illegal graffito's might gain from peer recognition of their vandalism.

Under the management plan, Council's graffiti removal contractor will be provided with a list of properties that have to be managed each month.

These will include:

  • Selected Council-owned and private properties that have to be patrolled regularly and graffiti has to be removed within three (3) days.

  • Council and private properties that are not patrolled regularly but once the graffiti is reported, it must be removed within three (3) days.

  • Reported / identified bill posters to be removed within five (5) working days.
