Alley gating

Service outline:

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 including:
  • 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
