Alley gating involves the installation of key-operated lockable gates to the end of alleyways, which restrict access to the wider public. Gating is seen as an effective method to prevent or reduce crime and anti-social behaviour (ASB). Although rear lanes can be useful routes and access to properties, they can also afford opportunities for burglary, flytipping and other crimes, and provide escape routes for offenders. There is high demand for gating schemes in Cardiff and funding is limited. However, based on the levels of crime and ASB associated with your lane we have determined that a gating scheme should be explored further.
