Graffiti vandalism

Porirua City Council (PCC) is taking action against tagging and graffiti. They want to prevent tagging, paint it out rapidly when it occurs and encourage pride in our community to own and manage this issue.

See latest initiative to combat graffiti and help Plimmerton win an exciting mural mosaic. See Xoe Hall's murals.

Here's what you can do to help:

  • Inform your children that tagging is a crime and that they and their parents will be prosecuted.
  • Report graffiti vandalism whenever you find it in Plimmerton, whether it is on private or public property. Call council's customer service centre  237 5089 or email with 'graffiti' in the subject line.  Please provide the nearest address and description of the graffiti.
  • Volunteer yourself, business or community group to assist with graffiti initiatives.  Please contact the graffiti management coordinator on 237 5089.
  • Become a graffiti guardian as part of the 'Adopt a Street Project'. This is something practical that you can do in areas you pass through every day while taking the dog for a walk, heading to or from work, or taking the children to school.  Sign up and report all graffiti as soon as possible so it can be removed within 24 hours.

For more information about graffiti vandalism and tagging, what to do if you see taggers in action, and suggestions for ways to prevent graffiti check out PCC's website for tagging.
