Cleaning up graffiti

Graffiti on council property

Please report graffiti on council property using our graffiti reporting form.

We aim to remove non-offensive graffiti from our property within 28 working days of any sighting or report and 48 hours for offensive graffiti sightings or reports.

Graffiti on private property

If there is graffiti on private property, this is down to the property owner to remove. If you are the owner, report it to Surrey Police. Graffiti is criminal damage and we work with the police to prosecute those responsible.

If a property owner is not able to remove the graffiti, they should seek assistance from the council. A charge will be made for the service and the owner will need to provide a disclaimer/indemnity for the services being undertaken.

The cost of graffiti removal is £69 per hour, plus a 6% administration charge. The price excludes VAT but includes the cost of materials.
