The Draft Graffiti Management Plan was developed in consultation through the Blue Mountains Graffiti Summit and consultation with key stakeholders. The aim of Draft Plan is to provide a clear and consistent framework for the management of graffiti within the Blue Mountains local government area and to ensure that regardless of the type of graffiti, where the graffiti is located or whom is responsible for its removal that the graffiti is removed in a timely fashion. The Draft Plan tackles graffiti in four distinct ways - eradication, engagement, education and enforcement with the view to building a partnership with the community to prevent acts of graffiti and effectively manage its removal.

    Is the Council responsible for removing Graffiti on my property?

    CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

    The Council is not responsible for removing graffiti from private property. This remains the responsibility of the property owner. Under the new Graffitti Management Act, the Council may remove graffiti on private property when it can be done so by access from a public area. For example this might occur in a park where a wall or  of a private building or a fence bordered the park or other public space . In this case, the Council could legally remove the graffiti provided that it didn’t enter upon the private property and did so from the park or other accessible land adjoing the grafitti. However, while Council will be allowed to remove graffiti in this way it does not have an obligation to do so.
