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, 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 during the period March 2016 – September 2017.
We are consulting with local residents regarding the introduction of four new Traffic Regulation Orders in north, south, east and west Belfast which would allow us to erect 298 alleygates across the City.
The affected households will receive a letter and survey in mid-September. If you receive a survey, please return it to us so we have your opinion on the proposed introduction of alleygates in your area.
Our staff will also carry out door to door visits in the affected areas throughout September and October. They can help you complete the survey if needed and answer any questions you may have about the scheme.
If you have any concerns about callers to your door always ask for ID before speaking to them.
Streets affected by the Traffic Regulation Order 2016
The orders will allow us to erect gates at the entrances to the back of specified streets.
They will stop vehicles and pedestrians using the alleyways to the rear and side of selected houses.
In specific circumstances, certain vehicles or pedestrians that need access to these alleys will be exempt.
