Darebin Graffiti Management Strategy 2019-2023

Council is reviewing the current Graffiti Management Strategy 2014-2018 and we would like you to share your thoughts on how we should manage unwanted graffiti in the new Strategy.


Background

Council endorsed its first graffiti management strategy in 2008 in response to the introduction by the State Government’s Graffiti Prevention Act 2007. As part of this commitment, Council has implemented a variety of initiatives and services to assist residents and businesses in managing graffiti on private property and to maintain the cleanliness of Council owned assets and other frequently vandalized infrastructure.

The current Graffiti Management Strategy 2014-2018 is guided by the following key objectives:

Objective 1: Maintain public amenity through the rapid removal of graffiti on Council assets

Objective 2: Support the community to rapidly remove graffiti from private property

Objective 3: Encourage and facilitate street art to prevent graffiti and enhance the street scape

Objective 4: Support community education and diversion programs to prevent graffiti

Objective 5: Support and facilitate the enforcement of the law


For more information, check out the current Graffiti Management Strategy 2014-2018 (below).

The following are the current programs that are running to support the community in the removal of graffiti:

1. Graffiti Subsidy Program – this program offers residential and commercial private property owners and occupiers a subsidy to remove graffiti from their property. They can apply for one of the following options:

- A $100 voucher for a 4 litre tin of paint

- A $100 voucher towards to cost of hiring a Council approved graffiti removal contractor

- A free environmentally friendly graffiti removal kit and cleaning materials

- An additional subsidy of up to $500 is available to assist residents in the removal of offensive graffiti (defamatory or degrading remarks about race, sex, religion or personal privacy)

2. Street Art Mural Subsidy Program – this subsidy program is an innovative project that aims to brighten the streetscape and prevent the re-occurrence of illegal graffiti and tagging through the provision of quality street art at locations previously subjected to graffiti.
