Graffiti on canalside of bus garage

Posted: 23/04/09

A long-running graffiti problem on the canal side of the Westbourne bus garage may be about to be cleaned up for good, after we got the council to intervene. They ordered the bus company to clean up their building, and the bus company contacted the local Inspector who has arranged to work with the Probation Service to clean it as part of community service for young offenders.

 

The Probation Service told local Labour Councillors that the offenders who will be cleaning up the graffiti include some who were responsible for putting it there in the first place. If it returns after it is cleaned off, the bus garage management now knows the contact number for the Probation Service, and it is on their regular round of community jobs needing doing - so whenever graffiti appears, it is likely to be cleaned off quite quickly.
