Graffiti and flyposting

Graffiti, flyposting and stickering are illegal, anti-social activities that create a negative impression of an area and contribute to people's fear of crime

You can make an online request to remove unsightly graffiti, flyposting or stickers from public property or street furniture.

Report online

What happens after you make a report?

We will remove offensive graffiti and flyposting within 1 working day of being notified. All other graffiti and flyposting will be removed within 5 working days.

If the graffiti or flyposting requires us to go on to private property we will contact the owner or business before we do so. If the incident is on a housing estate please contact your Estate Manager.

Businesses have a responsibility to remove graffiti from their own premises and often need planning permission for advertisements that affect the amenity of an area. The Council will investigate these reports and ensure they are removed
