Notice of Motion: Graffiti

Proposed: Michael Dixey, Seconded: Nick Eden-Green

This council is saddened by the increasing amount of graffiti which blights so many of our buildings, walls, street furniture, kiosks, etc It is worse than it ever has been despite the efforts of community groups, Serco and others to clean it off. This council will therefore:
1. Install hidden cameras in graffiti hotspots so that taggers can be identified and prosecuted
2. Offer rewards of £500 for information which leads to the conviction of taggers
3. Write to relevant local retailers reminding them that it is an offence to sell spray paint to minors
4. Publicly confirm that the council will remove graffiti from private property
5. Redouble efforts to remove graffiti across the district.
