    Q631: There is some graffiti/fly posters all over a wall on my street. Who should I contact to get it removed?

    You should contact the local council for the area where the graffiti or fly posting has taken place.

    If the person/organisation is known then it may be possible for the council to issue penalty notices and a 'defacement removal notice' (in Wales this is a 'graffiti removal notice' and applies only to graffiti).

    If it is on council owned property, or if it is offensive/racially abusive, the council may be responsible for removing it. If not then the council may be able to advise you who to contact or remove the graffiti at a charge.

    See the website in Related Information to find out your local council's details.
