Graffiti busting in Audley Road and Shorncliffe Road

Overnight, a large amount of particularly obtrusive graffiti has appeared on the walls and street furniture at the junction of Audley Road and Shorncliffe Road. Fortunately, Conservative Shepway District Council, Ashford Borough Council and Kent County have jointly purchased a graffiti and chewing gum buster machine. I have reported the graffiti and hope it will be removed swiftly, and will keep up the pressure to ensure that it is removed.

The machine, which is operated by offenders ordered to perform community service, is working its way around the district, dealing with the backlog of graffiti cases which have followed years of neglect, and I will be fighting hard to get the whole of Morehall cleaned up. Graffiti can be cleaned off any surface, including those in private ownership, so long as they can be safely accessed.

If you know of any graffiti which needs to be cleaned up, please let me know. Alternatively, you can contact the graffiti busters directly on 01303 858660 or streetscene@shepway.gov.uk
