Alleygates

  • Alleygates in Belfast

    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.

    For more information about alleygates call 028 9027 0469 or email communitysafety@belfastcity.gov.uk.

    We are proposing new alleygates for some streets in Belfast. By erecting gates at entrances to the back and side of certain streets, there will be restricted vehicle access to the alleys.The alleygate proposals are contained in a draft order. We issued a notice of intention in all areas affected. If you want to object, we can only accept written and signed objections by post.
