Report graffiti

Graffiti is illegal. It spoils property and can be costly to remove.

Please report any graffiti you see to us, being as specific as possible about its location and nature.

Report graffiti

Instead of using our online form you can call us on 01223 458282, or on 0300 303 8389 outside of normal business hours.

We aim to remove offensive graffiti – specifically anything that might be considered racist, sexist, obscene or inflammatory – within one day of receiving a report, and all other graffiti within five days. Our team works between 6am and 5pm every day.

We collect information on graffiti to help build profiles of offenders so that appropriate action can be taken by the police.

Graffiti on private property

Graffiti on private property may incur a charge for removal. We will discuss this with you before starting any work we will charge for.

All possible steps will be taken to ensure that any damage to surfaces is kept to a minimum. If we think removing graffiti will cause damage to your property, we will discuss options with you beforehand, and you are likely to be asked to sign a waiver to allow us to remove the graffiti.
