Graffiti Management Plan 2019-24

Graffiti is a complex issue for Council and the community. Our current Graffiti Management Plan guided the way we responded to graffiti from 2013 to 2018. During this time:

The number of reports varied from between 168 and 205 per month, and the average graffiti removal was 2,327 square meters. This includes a four-hour turnaround for removing obscene graffiti and a 10 day turnaround for all other graffiti removal requests.

We implemented multiple graffiti mitigation measures. In 2018, this included installation of artwork to three public toilets, a bus shelter, the refreshing of a laneway and a partnership with utilities suppliers to address their assets along Fitzroy Street, St Kilda. These arts based programs have seen significant reductions in graffiti levels at these high-profile locations, delivering improved services to our community.

We are currently seeking feedback to develop a new Graffiti Management Plan that will meet the evolving needs and expectations of the community and Council.

The Graffiti Management Plan will provide direction for the:

  • removal and management of graffiti across the city
  • implementation of community focussed programs that contribute to minimising occurrences of graffiti
  • provision of opportunities for people to participate in more legitimate forms of public art.

Your input will help guide our priorities and assist us in making choices that continue to meet the needs of our diverse community.
