Graffiti on Council buildings

Council will remove graffiti on its own buildings as soon as possible.

If you see graffiti on a Council building you should report it by calling Council's call centre  or completing a  Graffiti Removal Request Form.

Graffiti on personal property

Council is not responsible for removing graffiti on buildings they do not own. You will need to organise for the graffiti to be removed at your own expense.

You can see our   graffiti removal tips and Council provides a paid   Grafitti Removal Service. There are also companies listed in the Yellow Pages who can remove the graffiti for you at a cost.

The   Graffiti Removal Request Form is a quick and easy way to report graffiti in your neighbourhood.

Preventing graffiti

The following strategies can help to prevent graffiti:

  • Plant vegetation to help restrict access to walls or views into buildings
  • Provide lighting - a well lit area may deter vandalism
  • Secure your property - make sure your property can not be easily accessed by unauthorised persons.

Other graffiti

Graffiti on other items such as traffic signal control boxes, Energy Australia substations (the large green structures on footpaths) and Australia Post boxes is the responsibility of the utility body.

The pictures and contact numbers below may help you determine who ownes a particular item so you can ring the correct body and have the graffiti removed quickly. If the structure has an identification number anywhere on it, quoting that to the authority will assist them in locating it.
