Consultation has concluded

Illegal graffiti can be a costly and complex issue for Council. While some street art is embraced by the community, illegal graffiti damages property, contributes to a perception that an area is unsafe, may encourage anti-social behaviour, and ultimately costs ratepayers to remove it.

The aim of the Graffiti Management Project is to reduce illegal graffiti in Casey and raise awareness about Council’s free graffiti removal program within the community.

We’re also working with retail stores to ensure they store aerosol spray paint cans out of reach and are providing education about the laws regarding the sale and storage of spray paint.

Plus, did you know that Council will remove graffiti for free, usually within one business day, or within four hours if it’s offensive? (Conditions apply). Reporting graffiti is easy and can be done online at www.casey.vic.gov.au/graffiti or over the phone in matter of minutes.

Council is also working on a new Graffiti Management Plan, which takes a holistic approach to tackling graffiti at every stage, from Education and Engagement through to Eradication, Engineering, Enforcement and Evaluation.

We will come back to you when we have results from our recent survey.
