Alleygates help to reduce antisocial behaviour, burglaries and fear of crime. As well as making neighbourhoods feel safer, they're also helping to build a cleaner environment.
So far, we've installed 600 gates and secured the rear of 9,500 terraced homes and businesses. 89% of people have reported a positive impact on reducing the fear of crime and 73% saw a reduction in littering and dumping.
The third phase of our alleygates programme is now coming to an end, and we are now beginning phase 4.
We've almost finishing installing alleygates in north, south, east and west Belfast. Affected residents will receive notification of how and where to pick up keys.
