Councillor slams graffiti vandalism at newly upgraded seating area

25 Apr 2024

West End councillor Michael Crichton has slammed graffiti vandalism of a newly upgraded seating area at Sinderins, recently completed.    

Graffiti has been sprayed on a new ‘checker board’ outdoor games table at the “Sinderins triangle” which had been recently upgraded by Dundee City Council with new seating and planters. This was done as part of a number of environmental improvements in the Perth Road shopping centre, which also includes an upgrade at the Miller’s Wynd Car Park and new planter and seating at Pennycook Lane in front of the Ryehill Police Station.

Councillor Crichton said:

“Residents have commented very favourably on the improvements at the Sinderins seating area that removed old poor-conditioned seating and planters from the 1980s and upgraded the area.”  

“It is not long completed so very disappointing to see such mindless graffiti vandalism take place. Along with my ward colleague Councillor Fraser Macpherson, we have sought a clean-up by the council’s environment team and, although the graffiti will be removed, it is infuriating to see this sort of vandalism and there is of course a cost to the public purse having it removed.”

“The area is covered by CCTV and I hope that will deter vandalism in the future.”
