We can investigate fly-posting and graffiti on both public and private property but we only remove from public property.
We are unable to remove graffiti and fly-posting from:
- heights or where specialist training or equipment is needed
- surfaces where its removal would cause further damage
Graffiti includes painting, writing, soiling, marking and defacing property.
Damaging property with graffiti is a criminal offence. You can be fined with a Fixed Penalty Notice of £100.
If you see graffiti on a telephone box, please report damage on payphones to BT.
Fly-posting is the unauthorised placing of advertising – usually signs, posters or stickers – on property without the permission of the Council or owner.
If you are found to be responsible for an act of fly-posting we can issue you with a Fixed Penalty Notice of £100.
