The purpose of the Bill is to allow Hutt City Council to remove tagging immediately from private property visible from a public place.
We have made good progress in reducing graffiti vandalism across the city but it is a broad strategy that includes persistence in ensuring tags in public places are eliminated as quickly as possible.
The Bill is currently being publicly notified in August and September.
