Alley gating

Alley gating is a crime prevention measure which involves putting up security gates at the entrance to privately owned alleyways and passages.

The gates are effective at preventing fly-tipping in residential alleyways and also help to reduce the number of burglaries. Other advantages to installing gates include:

  • reduced opportunities for groups of people to cause disturbance or annoyance
  • fewer problems with dog fouling.
