National lockdown rules apply in Harlow. You must not leave, or be outside of your home except where necessary. You can now access community testing in Harlow to find out if you might have the virus without symptoms.


We investigate reports of graffiti on public land and private land, where the owner has asked us to.

To report graffiti, you will need:

  • the location of the graffiti
  • a description of the graffiti
  • a photo of the graffiti (if you have one)
  • your contact details

Once we receive your graffiti report, HTS (Property & Environment) Ltd will:

  • remove the graffiti from council property within 14 working hours (obscene and racist graffiti will be removed more quickly)
  • remove graffiti from private property at a cost to the person in control of the property (obscene and racist will be removed free of charge)

If someone continues to leave graffiti, we can give them a fixed penalty notice.
