Alleygates

Over 500 alleygates are installed throughout Middlesbrough to reduce burglaries where access can be gained to the rear of a property from an alley, and also to help reduce arson, fly tipping and anti-social behaviour. This in turn can lead to improved community spirit and give residents a sense of ownership of the alleys.

How do I obtain/return a key?

Gates should be locked at all times when not in use. Anyone requiring a key should bring two forms of identification to Middlesbrough House.

An £8 deposit is required, which will be refunded when the key is returned to the council. All keys should be returned to the address above.

How do I report a problem with a gate?

Alleygate maintenance problems should be reported online or by calling the Environment Contact Centre on 01642 726001.

How do I request an alleygate/footpath closure?

In the first instance please refer to the council's alleygate and footpath closure policy.
