FOI request (FOI220364)
Graffiti cleaning 2016 - 2017
Requested Wed 26 July 2017
Responded Wed 26 July 2017
I request to know how much money in Great British Pounds (£) your council has spent on cleaning graffiti during the duration of 30th June 2016 to 1st July 2017?
I am happy to receive this data in numerical form. For example:
"This UK council has spent £1,000 on cleaning graffiti in the time period 30th June 2016 to 1st July 2017"
NB: by Graffiti, I mean writing or drawings that have been scribbled, scratched, or painted illicitly on a wall or other surface within public view.
The East Sussex Waste Partnership (Wealden District Council, Eastbourne Borough Council, Hastings Borough Council and Rother District Council) is in a joint waste collection and street cleansing services contract with Kier. The cost for removing graffiti is included within the annual sum paid to Kier. Graffiti removal is not itemised as a bill rate and therefore the individual cost to each of these authorities for the period June 2016 to July 2017 cannot be identified.
