    Abstract

    The installation of gates to prevent access to alleys has become a common initiative to prevent burglary offences. This article outlines the findings of consultation with residents concerning such an installation. Residents' concerns centred on low-level nuisances and incivilities, rather than burglaries, and saw the gates as a means of reducing such problems. These expectations may have consequences for the perceived success of the project.
