That 'ruling' has been in force for some time - as is responsibility for removing anything dumped on your land . . .

You get what you vote for. Or, if you're one of the majority of people who can't be arsed to vote in local elections, what you deserve.

In my area you'll only be made to clean it yourself if you have refused to allow the council to do it for you.

And there's no way a council should be giving out cleaning chemicals! - the ones that are any good are serious stuff and should not be handled by anyone who doesn't have the necessary training or equipment. The ones that are safe aren't any good.

G-CPTN - the rules in place not withstanding, the council in question would have been better served going out to the location and speaking to local residents about the removal of the graffiti. Finding some of those residents to be elderly, they could have at least offered to clean u[p the graffiti on their behalf.

Anyhoo, this legislation wasn't meant for residents whose property had been vandalised, but, as with everything else, it has been turned on the law abiding and those who are more easily bullied eg pensioners.

Nice. From Bury Council, who have just announced pay cuts of 25% for their staff (lower-middle levels of course, the upper levels were "not subjected to the review"). To borrow: battery of the people, by the people, for the people.

People must take some responsibilty for their communities? Ok, we will... gis the money back then...

This was done in consultation with the Unions....."To provide equal pay for all"...I kid you not...It obviously did not go to plan:ugh::ugh:

Is having graffiti on a fence an offence?

In spite of the terrible pun, what would the residents be charged with in court?
