The Adelaide City Council is committed to maintaining a clean and attractive environment.
Our policy is that all graffiti is removed as soon as possible once it has been brought to our attention. If the graffiti is racist or offensive, or it is on our property, which includes council buildings, street furniture, traffic signals, pavements etc., our aim is to have it removed within 24 hours of it being reported.
Other instances of graffiti are removed as soon as possible and where the graffiti is on private property, the cooperation of the building owner is required. Assistance may be given to remove instances of graffiti.
In most instances graffiti is recorded and photographed and kept for future reference.
For reporting graffiti within the City of Adelaide, North Adelaide and the Park Lands there is a 24 hour Graffiti Hot Line: 8203 7100.
Graffiti can also be reported online: Graffiti Register Form
Our Graffiti Management Officer can be contacted on 8203 7203 and is available to assist in giving advice on appropriate methods of prevention and removal. The officer will also liaise with community and service groups, schools and businesses and advise on the cost of graffiti removal and the issues associated with instances of graffiti.
