Report fly-posting and graffiti

Please report any fly posting and graffiti so that we can remove it. We will respond to any reports of racist or offensive graffiti within 24 hours.

Fly-posting is the illegal display of posters, stickers, boards and other advertisements on buildings and street furniture.

Graffiti is any illegal marking to walls and other surfaces. 

What you need to know...

We aim to remove offensive graffiti in the borough within 24 hours, and other graffiti within seven working days, however, if reporting graffiti on property other than your own please be advised that the Council requires an indemnity form from the landowner before carrying out the works and this could lead to a delay to our service standards.

We do not remove graffiti from murals or sculptures.

We do not remove graffiti more than two metres high from ground level on any building. Should this occur we can provide a quotation for access equipment and removal.

Fly-posting and graffiti are environmental crimes.

The law allows our Environmental Crime Enforcement Officers to give anyone seen fly-posting or doing graffiti an on-the-spot fine called a fixed penalty notice (FPN).

The FPN is for £80, but if you are prosecuted in court for fly-posting you could receive a maximum fine of £2,500.
