Graffiti removalUnder Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Act (Northern Ireland) 2011 (often referred to as the Clean Neighbourhoods Act) we are now able to deal more effectively with flyposting and graffiti.
- We are able to issue £80 fines to graffiti and flyposting offenders.
- We can serve Defacement Removal Notices for graffiti and fly posting, placing responsibility on the owners of property in a street (including certain statutory agencies) to remove it.
- We can issue Removal Notices to anyone who is responsible for flyposting or graffiti requesting that they remove the posters or graffiti within in two days. Failure to comply may result in the council removing the flyposters or graffiti and charging the responsible person for their removal.
- Venue owners and event promoters can be held responsible for any flyposting in connection with events that are being promoted in their premises as the council can prosecute for this offence.
Our commitmentIf we agree to remove contentious graffiti, we will do it within one working day from the signing of an indemnity form.
If we agree to remove non-contentious graffiti, we will do it within four working days from the signing of an indemnity form.
