Report graffiti

Swindon Borough Council removes graffiti from publicly-owned buildings and structures within the Borough of Swindon. We also offer a free service to remove graffiti and tags from private homes in the Borough (see below for details). You will be asked to create a My Account before you can access the form.

Request the removal of graffiti online

We will remove offensive or abusive graffiti on Council buildings and structures in one working-day once the presence of the graffiti being reported to us. We will remove non-offensive or abusive graffiti from Council buildings and structures within ten working-days.

Where graffiti is on privately owned business property or structures (e.g. gas tanks, BT/Virgin boxes, electricity and water sub-stations etc.) you should contact the owners of the property to arrange for removal.

Graffiti removal from your home

We offer a free service to remove graffiti from your home. Terms and conditions apply to this service and you must complete a Removal of Graffiti Disclaimer (PDF) to acknowledge acceptance of them before removal work can done. On receipt of a completed disclaimer, we will schedule the graffiti removal work, which will be done within 28 working-days.

There are two types of service:

  • High-pressure jet washing
  • Over-painting

We use over-painting if we believe there may be a likelihood the surface could be damaged by jet washing. If you are concerned about the Jet Washing option you may opt for over-painting only by indicating so on the disclaimer.
When you have downloaded and completed the disclaimer, please either:
