The conversation

Our Graffiti Management Plan 2014-18 was out of date and needed to be revised.

From 23 November to 20 December we sought community input on five key social priorities identified within the plan:

  1. Prevention
  2. Engagement and Collaboration
  3. Removal
  4. Enforcement
  5. Street Art

Gathering insights

We gathered feedback through an online survey and interactive map, where we asked the community which areas of the municipality we should prioritise for graffiti monitoring and proactive removal.

Impact

Feedback we heard during consultation was reviewed and used to inform decision making for the new Graffiti Management Policy.

These updates include:

  • Rapid removal of illegal and offensive graffiti.
  • Anti-graffiti coating to be applied to private properties.
  • More murals and legal spaces for the community to access.

Next steps

It is anticipated that the updated Graffiti Management Policy will be completed and submitted to Council for consideration in June 2021. If approved, the policy will be released following this.
