New Town gets graffiti removal action

Graffiti removal has been undertaken in the New Town area of Essex as part of the Safer Colchester Project.

The initiative will be running in New Town for three months and various agencies will be taking part, including Essex Police, Colchester Borough Council’s street wardens and Essex County Council’s Trading Standards and Integrated Youth Service.

As for the graffiti removal, the Essex Probation Community Payback scheme worked alongside police officers to clean and repaint an area of land opposite the Alms Houses on Military Road.

"This clean-up has been an excellent start to our time in New Town and sets the tone that graffiti will not be tolerated," explained chief inspector Adrian Coombs.

He revealed that the police will work with partners to carry out graffiti removal in other areas.

This Is Nottingham recently reported that graffiti removal will be carried out by City Services Neighbourhood Teams and will focus on areas that the public are most concerned about.
