Gating orders

Alley areas that suffer from high levels of crime or antisocial behaviour may benefit from being closed at certain times (such as a night or during weekends).  When we plan to close an alleyway with a gate, we will issue a gating order.

To comment on any of the gating orders listed below, you need to -

  • send your comments in an email to or by post to the address at the bottom of the page

  • quote the gating order reference number on your correspondence - the reference number is shown on the relevant order

  • make sure your comments will reach us by the deadline - the deadline for comments is shown on the relevant order

Current gating orders

Proposed gating orders are available as pdf documents below -

How we decide to make a gating order

Gating orders can be made in relation to any highway for which we are the highway authority, if we are satisfied that the -

  • premises adjoining or adjacent to the highway are affected by crime or antisocial behaviour

  • existence of the alley is helping people to commit crime or antisocial behaviour

Gating orders are reviewed on a yearly basis.
