A significant decline in unauthorised graffiti has been seen in North Somerset in the past 10 years.

A freedom of information request submitted to North Somerset Council has shown fewer vandals are spraying messages and drawings.

Just 19 reports of graffiti have been recorded by the council this financial year, with only 28 recorded from 2017-18.

This is much fewer than in previous years, such as 2010-11 and 2011-12 when 121 and 147 pieces of graffiti were recorded by the authority.

The council recorded 22 reports of obscene graffiti since 2008, while 19 racist tags were reported – although none have been found in the past three years.

Clevedon’s Hillview Avenue was the joint-most targeted road by vandals in North Somerset, with 17 incidents reported.

Three other Clevedon roads – Moor Lane, Elton Road, and Crabtree Path – made the top 10, while Wyndham Way and Phoenix Way in Portishead also made the list.
