Graffiti removal by us

We can investigate graffiti if it is on Council owned and managed property. This includes street signs, litter bins and our buildings, as well as in Council operated car parks. We prioritise removing offensive graffiti.

We are unable to clear graffiti from private property such as buildings, boundary walls and fence. This is the responsibility of the property owner.

You can report graffiti to us using our online form below.
