Graffiti is words or drawings scribbled, scratched, or sprayed without permission in a public place. It is illegal.
How we respond to reports
We aim to remove graffiti that is in a public place in Walsall Borough within five working days of receiving a report. This may take longer if we group several removals together, to make the best use of our resources.
We will prioritise anything offensive and aim to remove this within two working days. This includes content that discriminates against race, sex, age, gender, sexual orientation, religion or nationality.
Graffiti on private land
You shouldn't use this service to report problems on private land, as we are unable to pass these on.
We are only insured to remove graffiti from public property. If you own the affected property, it is your responsibility to remove it. We may take enforcement action if you don't. If the graffiti is on unadopted land or we can't find out who the landowner is, we will decide how to deal with it.
