There has been a huge increase in the amount of yoof art covering the area lately. Is anything being done to try to catch the half wit kids that are doing it ? Personally I favour a taser but that might contravene their human rights and we can’t have that can we.

Not more!
Good luck getting someone to clear it up !

I have been trying since July to get the graffiti cleared on Crown Hill. Six months later it still hasnt gone. I evenemailled Mark Francois in August to raise the issue. That hasnt helped either. Just what needs to be done to get this cleared up? Its so frustrating.

Dave A, if the yoof art is on private property then I believe it’s harder for RDC to remove. I can’t agree with you more, I hate graffiti, it really makes an area run down.

I have requested that the graffiti on the bus shelter in Downhall Road be removed and have been assured that it will be done. Have also walked all the ward, the town council one, and reported some pavement issues. Please report any problems with pavements as these do tend to take a lower priority than potholes.

Bruce, well done. What are your thoughts about getting rid of the yoof art in Crown Hill and on the hoarding around Station Approach ?
