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 4 of the alleygating scheme we are committed to spending £700,000 on alleygates throughout the city. All gates will be installed by October 2018.

In addition, as part of Phase 4b we have consulted with 1846 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 112 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.

We are proposing to create a legal order which would allow us to install alleygates in the following areas:
