Tuesday, 16 July 2019

We are working in close partnership with local police and community members to improve graffiti management across the region.

If your property is vandalised through graffiti or you observe graffiti in your area, report it to the Police via the Police Assistance Line – 131 444 – as quickly as possible.

Removing graffiti quickly not only makes the process easier but also reduces the likelihood that offenders will recommit.

Council is responsible for the removal of graffiti on our facilities and we encourage you to notify us if you observe graffiti on any of our properties.

It is the owner’s responsibility to remove graffiti from private property but Council can help by supplying a free graffiti removal kit.

The kits provide the chemicals and equipment needed to remove graffiti from your own property or, with permission, the properties of friends and neighbours.

Free graffiti removal kits are available from all Central Coast libraries and Council’s Gosford and Wyong customer service centres. To receive a graffiti removal kit, residents and business owners must be aged over 18 and show proof of address.

The kits are one of many initiatives which help to reduce graffiti across the Coast.

We currently preparing the first Draft Central Coast Graffiti Management Strategy 2019 – 2022 for our region and will be inviting the community to provide feedback later this year.
