Graffiti

Graffiti is criminal damage. To report it, please call Neighbourhood Services or use our graffiti reporting form.

Spelthorne's Graffiti Policy

We are committed to removing overtly offensive graffiti within 24 hours.

We record and share details of graffiti and "tags" or signatures with the Police and will seek damages where Council owned sites are defaced. The Police will arrest anyone involved in such acts. Offenders are being fined and made to pay damages.

How to get graffiti removed

Most graffiti is made by permanent marker pen or paint spray can, it is best to remove it before it has chance to dry. Scrub and wash it off with strong detergent. Stubborn graffiti can be removed by specialised removal products from hardware stores.
