What is graffiti?
Graffiti vandalism is any writing or drawing placed on private or public property or structures without the consent of the property owner. Graffiti can occur as political statements, slurs, slogans, jokes or individual marks.
Click the links below to find out more about reporting, removing and preventing graffiti in your area and on your property.
We encourage the community to report all graffiti incidences that occur as soon as possible. Reports via our "Report a Problem" page and appropriate action will be taken on the communities behalf.
Rapid removal is considered best practice in combating graffiti. The longer it remains, the more attention it gets and the more difficult it can be to remove. Find out about our free Graffiti Removal Kits available from Central Coast Council Libraries.
There are various ways that the community can help to prevent graffiti through good design, simple changes and new innovations.
Graffiti removal day
The NSW Government have established a state-wide graffiti removal and prevention day known as 'Graffiti Removal Day'. The aim of Graffiti Removal Day is to highlight the problem of graffiti and encourage people to volunteer their time to remove and prevent graffiti.
Nominate a site or volunteer to help on the day here.
