Graffiti and so-called 'street art' is an eyesore

The old youth centre 'Bridge Bar Cafe' which has now been replaced by Naomi's Cafe still has a nasty old mural on the side wall, above a delightful rubbish tip. The mural has been there for years and I can only imagine it is now an embarrasment for the artists who presumably now regret the poor perspective on the 'blue face' and anachronistic street language. Is this really appropriate for Banbury town centre? It has been there at least 10 years as far as I can tell, and the youth centre has since been relocated. What is being done about this? NB I note that the rubbish was reported in the winter of this year - it is now July - please will this be dealt with soon? In addition there is some racist graffiti on the other side of the building which has been rather pathetically scribbled out using more spray paint, ideally this should be painted over properly so that we don't have to look at it, - it was really quite offensive, involving the 'P' word.

The council say that the graffiti mural is ok because 'it has never been vandalised'. It is true that nobody has painted on it, however stacking large quantities of junk and household refuse against it still looks like 'damage' and 'disrespect' to me.
