Removing graffiti

Before we can proceed with the removal of general graffiti from a private property the property owner will need to complete an Indemnity form and return it to us at the address below:

Veolia
Works Road
Letchworth Garden City
Hertfordshire
SG6 1LP

You can request the Indemnity form to be sent to you by calling the number above or you can download it:

However, under sections 48, 49, 50 and 52 of the Anti-social Behaviour Act 2003 (as amended) local authorities have the powers to swiftly remove any physical sign of hatred on any property in order to minimise the risk of increased tensions. Although we would endeavour to contact the property owner prior to removal, depending on the severity of the graffiti we may remove it regardless of if we have the agreement of the property owner. We report all incidences of racist graffiti to the Police.
