Alleygates help in tackling domestic burglary, other crime and anti-social behaviour - such as drug-related crime, fly tipping and dog fouling.

There is currently no further funding available for alleygate schemes. Any new initiatives have to be funded by residents or businesses.

Alleygate keys 

In order to maintain low crime levels, it is important to restrict the number of keys in circulation to one key per household.

To request a new or replacement alleygate key, contact 0151 606 5443. There is a £9 charge, including VAT, postage and packing.
