Graffiti on Property owned by the Council
South Gloucestershire Council
South Gloucestershire Council has a policy of removing graffiti from council-owned property within three working days. Priority is given to offensive and hate-related graffiti.
Obviously, the council can only do this when it knows about an incident of graffiti, so here are the ways in which you can tell them:
- Via the Graffiti page on the Council’s website and click on ‘Report Graffiti’
- Email Streetcare: streetcare-AT-southglos.gov.uk (replace ‘-AT-‘ with ‘@’)
Whichever method you use, you will need to give a precise description of the location of the graffiti.
Bradley Stoke Town Council
Bradley Stoke Town Council is responsible for some (green) bus shelters and some (black and gold) litter bins in Bradley Stoke.

“Graffiti is not something the Town Council is willing to accept in our town. BSTC is unfortunately not able to action removing graffiti from street furniture, walls etc. that do not belong to the town council, however we will be responsible for reporting it to the correct agencies e.g. South Gloucestershire Council, Western Power, Royal Mail, BT. Once the graffiti is reported we will endeavour to follow up the reports until graffiti is removed.”
Graffiti on Private Property
South Gloucestershire Council will also remove graffiti from private property, subject to obtaining consent of the owner. There is a charge for this service – currently believed to be £15.
Contact details as above.
