Statistics from the city council show a jump in graffiti, from 55 in April to 102 in May. Incidents also increased in New Brighton – but not by as many. It went from 41 to 47 and Wainoni went up from 25 to 36. Linwood Park was also labelled as a graffiti hot spot with 11 incidents in May. Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board member Alexandra Davids said Linwood Park has been an ‘ongoing issue’ in terms of graffiti and vandalism. The city council locked the toilets in the park earlier this year in an effort to reduce the vandalism and graffiti being done to them. Ms Davids said the city council and graffiti team monitor the area and try to keep the area clear the graffiti as soon as possible. Thomson Park in New Brighton and Hampshire St in Aranui also fall into the hot spot category, both had five graffiti incidents. HOT HEAT PUMP OFFER!
