Draft Amended Graffiti Management Policy - Submission closed 25 May 2020

The NSW Government is reviewing the Graffiti Control Act 2008. The purpose of the review is to see how the State Government can improve and help councils in tackling graffiti and illegal bill posting which has significant costs as well as broader social, health and environmental impacts, including making people feel unsafe in their local community.

Council provided feedback along with a recommendation for each key focus area (see further detail in the Council report in the document library). The review and feedback of the current Graffiti Control Act 2008 then prompted the Engineering and Property Services Division to review and update all of Council’s graffiti related documentation and Policies. A review of the following documentation was undertaken:

• Graffiti Management Policy - last adopted by Council on 25 June 2018 (Last amended and reviewed February 2013);

• ‘Graffiti Solutions’ brochure made available on Council’s website

• ‘Graffiti Clean Up’ page on Council’s website; and

• Graffiti Removal on Private Property Agreement Form

Council resolved at its meeting scheduled 23 March 2020 (held 6 April 2020) to place the amended Graffiti Management Policy on public exhibition for 28 days from Tuesday 28 April to Monday 25 May 2020.

The amended policy is available in the document library. Additions to the policy are shown in red text and deletions are shown in strikethrough.

UPDATE APRIL 2020 - Draft Closed Circuit Television Policy - Submissions closed 12 February 2020

North Sydney Council has a number of Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) devices across various Council facilities, including the Council Chambers. In order to manage the operation of these cameras in accordance with legislation and Australian Standards, the need for an overarching policy and guidelines (supporting work instructions) was identified.

The Draft CCTV Policy is consistent with the NSW Government Policy Statement and Guidelines for the Establishment and Implementation of Closed CircuitTelevision in Public Places (2014) and, incorporates Council’s existing procedures detailed on the current form requesting access to CCTV footage.

On 15 November 2019, Council considered a report detailing the draft CCTV Policy and resolved to endorse the policy for public exhibition. The report is available in document library.

The outcomes of the public exhibition will be reported to Council in 27 April 2020 - click here to view a copy of the report.
