Graffiti and flyposting

Graffiti

There is no legal requirement for the Council to remove graffiti. We use high pressure cleaning equipment to remove graffiti from public land, street furniture and Council property.

  • We will not remove graffiti from private properties.
  • On public land, street furniture and other Council property we aim to remove graffiti within 5 days of the report being received. We will remove offensive graffiti within one working day.
  • We aim to deliver a high quality service, which continually improves and meets the needs of the local community. Keeping our streets looking attractive and free of graffiti benefits all Braintree's residents and visitors to the District.
