Graffiti - Parade Steps
Reported in the Graffiti category by David Stephens at 09:56, Mon 9 July 2018
Sent to Folkestone and Hythe District Council 3 minutes later. FixMyStreet ref: 1359127.
This graffiti was reported by me to the Council on about 27 May, and I got a response with a reference no. WK/201815438 on 29 May. Unfortunately I've received nothing since, and the graffiti on the stairs is even worse as the three photos I took yesterday may show. (I actually took nine of them but we're only allowed to post 3 here, so these are the first three). As the wheels of bureaucracy seem to turn very slowly in Folkestone, I felt it best to revert to FixMyStreet to see if this forum can accelerate a solution to what is a disgraceful state of affairs, especially now that the Bail Steps are being fixed and more people are likely to use the Parade Steps in the meanwhile.
I would also like to ask if the council could find a way of using anti-graffiti paint on the walls and maybe put up a CCTV camera to catch the morons that do this kind of totally antisocial thing.
Still nothing done.

I suppose in a town seemingly mainly populated by people of both sexes and many age groups who believe graffitiing their own bodies with tattoos is an acceptable practice, there really isn't much hope that they - or their councillors - will care very much about the pathetic sprayings of walls with paint. Frankly, I'm giving up trying to get anything done about either issue, and hereby resign. What a dump Folkestone is.
