Public Sector: Richmond set for anti-graffiti drive

Richmond Council is urging businesses to help clean up the borough as part of its Business Pride Campaign, which kicks off next week.

Starting with a business breakfast, local companies will be asked to sign a charter of responsibility, requiring them to remove graffiti from their property within a specified timeframe.

The council will be working with the police, schools, youth service and young offender teams until the end of the year.

It wants to crack down on graffiti artists and will be offering rewards of up to £1,000 to providers of information that leads to prosecution.

'We need to communicate that graffiti ruins the environment for everyone,' said Richmond head of comms Cormac Smith.
