Ealing Council to gate more alleyways across the borough

Hundreds of homes will be made more secure after Ealing Council agreed a £720,000 programme to gate alleyways across the borough.

135 more alleyways will be fitted with gates over the next two years to reduce the risk of burglary, flytipping and anti-social behaviour.

The council pays around £200 for each home secured by installing alley gates, reducing the risk of burglars breaking into homes unseen and can also help prevent drug dealing and anti-social behaviour.

That is over £5300 per alley way – is that value for money?

The two year programme will make over 2,500 households safer, this is in addition to the 1,380 households secured over 2008/09.

Susan Parsonage, Director of Safer Communities, said: "These gates help to secure vulnerable alleyways and can also act as a deterrent to anyone trying to use the alley for anything criminal."

"We are determined to make Ealing safer and this scheme has a great impact on reducing crime and also giving residents whose areas were previously blighted by anti-social behaviour greater peace of mind."
