Waitakere supports bill to control graffiti
Waitakere Council today endorsed Manukau City’s promotion of a local bill to control graffiti.
Manukau’s Control of Graffiti Bill 2004 proposes to minimise the graffiti problem at Manukau by penalising and deterring offenders and by providing the Council and Police with extra power to deal with graffiti and offenders.
The Bill seeks to regulate the sale and display of graffiti implements, for example spray paint, to juniors and to make graffiti an offence with associated penalties.
The Waitakere Council voted to support Manukau’s Bill and also measures resulting in more effective control over graffiti at a local, regional or national level.
A Waitakere report concluded that a Bill is likely to be an effective graffiti-control measure, but to be effective across the region, it considers that the Bill’s scope will need to be increased to apply to the Auckland Region.
Waitakere spends $500,000 a year on graffiti eradication and community education.
