Vision: The Christchurch City Council Graffiti Programme [PDF, 3.1 MB] takes a lead role in supporting a collaborative, structured city-wide approach to the eradication, engagement, education and enforcement in relation to graffiti vandalism.

Goal: To reduce the impact that graffiti vandalism has on residents of and visitors to Christchurch City.

Graffiti vandalism contributes to community unease. It can lead to a perception that an area is out of control and can increase the fear of crime.

What do we do?

  • Remove graffiti from Council property
  • Provide free recycled paint and accessories needed to remove graffiti
  • Coordinate with groups including the Police, communities, property owners, businesses, Probation and graffiti-removal contractors
  • Work with communities to develop murals on frequently targeted buildings or property
  • Coordinate clean up days with community groups 
  • Present to schools, community groups, expos and community events
  • Assist the Police with graffiti investigations.

The Graffiti Team is more than happy to chat about creating a mural, removing graffiti, project ideas or to attend an event, contact us.
