We tackle persistent crime and anti-social behaviour (ASB) on public rights of way (PRoWs), including alleyways, by installing lockable gates to restrict access.

Areas where gates are fitted have seen a reduction to crime and ASB incidents, including:

  • burglaries
  • arson
  • fly tipping

Alley gate PIN codes and keys

If your property is adjacent to an alleyway that has gates fitted you can contact us to request the numerical code to operate the lock.

If you have difficulty in operating the code keypad you can contact us to request a key to open the gates instead.

Keys for Scarcroft View gate

Complete a Scarcroft View gate key application form. Keys are available to anyone who wishes to have one, but are limited to one per household.

Report a problem

If you experience any problems or faults please contact us quoting the gate number or its location.

Public Space Protection Orders

We announce new alley gates with Public Spaces Protection Orders (PSPOs), which have replaced Gating Orders.

New powers offered by PSPOs allow alternative restrictions to be imposed, to assist with preventing a wider range of behaviours.

PSPO consultations

When looking at making a PSPO we must consult with those who are affected by the possible restrictions.

PSPOs and Gating Orders, and their associated plans, are available for download or can be inspected at our Customer Centre at West Offices.

Our Alley Gating Policy is currently under review.
