Banyule Council would like to hear ideas from community members about how to better manage graffiti in Banyule. The feedback will be used to develop Council’s 2019-2022 Graffiti Management Strategy.
Council is keen to stem the social, environmental and economic impact graffiti has on the community by tackling the three key areas of reporting, prevention and removal of graffiti in the next four year strategy.
Banyule Mayor, Cr Wayne Phillips said that the new strategy will build a sustainable approach to graffiti management and will ensure that Council and community resources are used wisely in addressing this issue.
“Graffiti can impact how safe people feel and it damages the look and feel of our neighbourhood,” Cr Phillips said.
“This period of community consultation is a great opportunity to explore innovative ways to tackle graffiti in our community. We won’t be able to eliminate it, but I’m confident we can put effective graffiti management plans in place.”
You can have your say about graffiti management in Banyule on Council’s Shaping Banyule website until March 2019.
