Alleygates

Alleygates help to reduce antisocial behaviour, burglaries and fear of crime in areas of Belfast where they have been installed. As well as making neighbourhoods feel safer, they're also helping to build a cleaner environment. 

Under the Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Act (Northern Ireland) 2011 (often referred to as the Clean Neighbourhoods Act), we're able to make gating orders. These are legal orders which allow us to install alleygates in any part of the city. 

As part of Phase 4c we have consulted with 1223 residences and are now in the position to advertise the Notice of Intention to enable us to enact the legislation which will see the installation of a further 60 gates. 

All affected households will receive a letter and a copy of the Notice of Intention and notices will be displayed at the proposed gating sites.

Notice is hereby given that the Council in the exercise of the powers conferred on it by Articles 69A to 69E of the Roads (Northern Ireland) Order 1993 as inserted in the Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Act (Northern Ireland) 2011.
