For many local authorities, transport providers and property owners, graffiti is unsightly, distressing and expensive to remove. However, ‘street art’ by the likes of Banksy has added further fuel to the art versus crime debate.
Keep Britain Tidy continues to support local authorities and organisations, to help reduce graffiti in their local areas.
To access key facts and figures, publications, case studies and legislation around it visit Keep Britain Tidy’s Litter Knowledge Bank.
