Did you know that the Council will remove graffiti from a residential property free of charge?
All that is needed is the permission of the owner.
I’m very pleased to report the council removed the graffiti from a wall on the back garden of a house in Carmichael Way fronting onto Gershwin Road. This was a bit more tricky than usual as this was a Stonewater property. I visited the occupier at the beginning of September, who was only too happy to have it removed, but a referral was needed to Stonewater (plenty of e-mails back and forth in my in-box!).
Two weeks later, the graffiti was removed.
The council have done a grand job fixing it. The trouble is, the wall has suffered from frost shattering and water damage and will need a rebuild anyway in a few years’ time.
