Graffiti

Ruapehu has a vision of "being free from graffiti and zero tolerance is shown toward graffiti vandalism".

Council has adopted a 'Zero Tolerance for Graffiti Vandalism Strategy' with support of local community organisations, schools, Iwi, and the Police.

Vision Statement:

 Ruapehu is free from graffiti, and zero tolerance is shown toward graffiti vandalism.

What to do to report Graffiti on Public Property

  • Please contact Council to report any graffiti found on public property.
  • Council aims at a two working day turnaround for removal. 

Graffiti on Private Property

  • It is the responsibility of owners to remove graffiti from their own private property.
  • Free grey paint is available for property owners as a first paint-out response.
  • Contact Council if you would like to make use of this free paint.
  • Council cannot provide brushes or labour to paint out graffiti on private property

We need the support of our entire community to take pride in our neighbourhoods and to remove graffiti as rapidly as possible. Please note: Statistical eveidence shows that quickly painting over graffiti deters further vandalism.
