(2) Graffiti removal contractors monitor and remove unauthorised graffiti from assets throughout the ACT. There are also 30 legal graffiti practice sites around the ACT that are used as a diversionary graffiti management approach. These legal walls provide authorised options for graffiti and street art. The ACT Government also commissions murals around the ACT to provide opportunities for artists and to deter unauthorised graffiti. Last year in Yerrabi, a local Aboriginal artist and elder was commissioned to paint a mural at Yerrabi Pond. This mural has been effective in helping reduce unauthorised graffiti in that area.

(3) Graffiti is removed from assets within five business days (or 24 business hours if offensive). Graffiti on private assets are the responsibility of the asset owner to manage. The TCCS graffiti management program works with the Justice and Community Safety Directorate to coordinate volunteers from their offenders’ program to remove graffiti from private fences.
