Graffiti on council-owned property

We are responsible for removing graffiti on council-owned property. We are not responsible for removal of graffiti from private properties; this is the responsibility of the owners.

How quickly we remove graffiti depends on the nature of it. Offensive graffiti is usually removed within 48 hours. Non-offensive graffiti is usually removed within 28 days.

Use this form to report graffiti on public buildings, in public parks and open spaces and on street name plates and road signs within the borough of Bury.

Please answer all the questions in our online form as clearly and accurately as you can to help us to deal with the problem you are reporting.
