Graffiti is a complex and often emotive issue, prompting a diverse range of opinion.

In late 2018, we ran a four-week engagement program that sought community feedback on priorities for managing graffiti within the city.

Your feedback was considered and used to guide the development of a new Graffiti Management Plan for 2019-24. This new Plan aims to meet the evolving needs and expectations of the community and Council.

We are now checking back in with you to ensure that we have adequately interpreted your feedback.

Please take a look at the draft Graffiti Management Plan 2019-24 and/ or the summary fact sheet available in the documents library on the right, and provide your feedback by completing the survey below.

Consultation closes 24 April 2019.

Next steps

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

The final plan will be presented to Council for endorsement at the meeting on 15 May 2019.


Draft Graffiti Management Plan Survey

Personal information such as age, gender and postcode are being collected by Council for the purpose of providing a demographic snapshot of contributions that helped inform the development of the draft Graffiti Management Plan. Demographic data allows Council to assess whether it is providing all areas of the community with an opportunity to become involved. Demographic data may be published and used as part of a Council report. Optional contact details can be provided if you would like to receive project updates. Requests for access and or correction of the information should be made to Council’s Privacy Officer via ASSIST on 03 9209 6777 or email assist@portphillip.vic.gov.au

Have you read the draft Graffiti Management Plan and/ or the summary fact sheet?

Graffiti Removal

We heard that a 10 business day response to requests for graffiti removal was acceptable, but needed to be faster in specific circumstances. In our new draft Plan we have proposed to prioritise removal of graffiti that is obscene, in high traffic areas and to public toilets.

Do you agree with this approach?

Reducing Graffiti

In the draft plan, we have prioritised street art and greening as preferred ways of reducing graffiti. Street art and greening projects will be identified by Council, using graffiti removal data. Council will commission artworks, and greening programs will be delivered by Council working alongside community groups.

Do you agree with this approach?
We heard that our community are mostly supportive of reducing graffiti through street art. Are there any areas where you would like to see street art increased?
