Graffiti is an act of vandalism that can be unsightly, offensive and abusive. The presence of graffiti can also have a negative affect on the surrounding area with visitors less likely to visit.
The Anti-Social Behaviour Act 2003 states that the person responsible for the surface is accountable for the cost of getting the graffiti removed. A ‘graffiti removal notice’ will be issued to them ordering the removal of the graffiti within a specific time period or face prosecution.
Graffiti on walls and surfaces is never the same and can take many forms, such as paints, waxy substances, chalks, felt-tip markers, ball point pens and adhesive labels which are all difficult to remove with normal cleaning methods.
