Graffiti Removal Strategy

12/11/2019 - Graffiti Removal Policy



(i)           That the Graffiti Policy be approved, and the set of parameters and expectations for the team to operate within, be agreed.


(ii)         That the use of a consent form for signing by property owners for graffiti removal from private property be noted. Without written consent from the property owner, City Of York Council would not remove graffiti from private property (except where, in exceptional circumstances, the Council may have chosen to serve a notice on the owner requiring removal of offensive graffiti using statutory powers and the owner had not complied with such a notice). 


(iii)        That the proposed charging structure, which will be built into the fees and charges for consideration in budget setting, be noted.


Reason: To give effect to the Council decision to fund graffiti removal from private property.
