The aim of this project is the eradication of graffiti and associated environmental nuisance and vandalism on and around public transport areas and on vehicles, whilst avoiding displacement into surrounding neighbourhoods. It will encompass graffiti, vandalism, and environmental nuisance including litter and dog fouling.


The project will include a literature review of graffiti reduction and removal and associated environmental nuisance and vandalism - both domestic and international, analysis of differences and similarities in the reasons for and solutions to the different aspects of graffiti, vandalism and environmental nuisance, review of good practice both national and international and consideration of the benefits of cross agency working to tackle all aspects of the problem.
