Graffiti is writing or drawings scribbled, scratched or sprayed on a wall or other surface in a public place.

Report graffiti

Offensive graffiti will be dealt with as soon as possible within 24 hours of being reported. If it can't be removed without damaging the structure or material of the building, however, its removal may take longer.

If the graffiti is on private property, the owner of the property must sign a disclaimer form agreeing that the council and its contractor will not be liable for any damage caused directly or indirectly as a result of the graffiti removal.
