Alley gating schemes

Apply for Chrysalis funding to secure privately owned alleyways.

The alley gating scheme assists local residents in securing their privately owned alleyways against intrusion by others.

By installing lockable gates the quality of life for residents and businesses can be dramatically improved.  The gates can reduce the likelihood of burglars gaining access to the rear of properties, protect the alley from fly-tipping and other anti-social behaviour.

The Chrysalis fund for alley gates invites applications for alleyways that serve at least six households and will contribute up to 90% of the cost of alley gates to successful applicants.  Once the gates are installed future maintenance and ownership will be the responsibility of local residents.

Please note: The council do not hold keys for privately owned gating schemes. If a spare key is required, we would recommend speaking to your neighbours in the first instance.
