If I report graffiti using the online form will the graffiti be removed

The State Government has introduced Graffiti Vandalism Removal Standards by way of a Premier's Circular.   This directive applies to all public entities covered by the Public Sector Management Act. These entities are encouraged to remove graffiti from their assets within the 48-hour timeframe.

While local councils are exempt from adhering to the requirements of Premier's Circulars, many local councils have in place local removal standards which aim to meet the 48-hour removal target.

Removal of graffiti on private property may require the cooperation of the property owner and depending on the level of cooperation this will impact on overall removal graffiti times. Residents concerned about the removal of graffiti from their or other private property should contact their local council to discuss the arrangements in place.
