Graffiti Management

The City of Holdfast Bay prides itself on being a premier travel, residential and commercial destination.  Anything that takes away from the beauty of the area, such as graffiti, is of high concern to Council.

Our Graffiti Management Plan aims to prevent and reduce the incidence of graffiti, by supplying free graffiti removal products, volunteer graffiti removal services and contact details for other utilities such as SA Power Networks and SA Water.

To tackle graffiti head on, we have established a Rapid Response Team and a Graffiti Removal Policy, which sees offensive graffiti removed within 24 hours and non-offensive graffiti removed within 48 hours.
