Alley gating

Alley gating is a very simple crime preventative measure which involves erecting steel, self locking gates to the ends of alley-ways and passages that are the responsibility of the home owners who live around them.

There are a number of other advantages in addition to reducing the levels of burglaries which include:

  • reduced opportunities for youths to cause annoyance - this could mean anything from drinking in the alleys to taking drugs
  • fewer problems of dog fouling by stray dogs
  • safe play areas for children
  • improved community spirit giving a sense of ownership of the alleys
