Our responsi​bilitie​s

The local authority has a responsibility to remove graffiti from:

  • Public buildings
  • Monuments 
  • Street furniture (such as benches)

We are not responsible for

  • Telephone boxes
  • Bus shelters 
  • Electricity boxes
  • Billboards
These are the responsibility of the company that placed them there. You will need to contact the appropriate company:

Private buildings are not our responsibility. However, with the landowner’s approval we sometimes assist with the removal.
