Decision:

RESOLVED - That the installation of alley gates in the alleyway that runs to the rear of 12-30 Copster Hill Road in a SW direction for 34m and is 4m wide. Then runs in an E direction for 12m and is 4m wide and then back in a SW direction behind 18-30 Copster Hill Road for 32m and is 4m wide.

Reasons for the decision:

Option 1 - installation of alleygates as deatiled in the report attached
Option 2 - The alternative to installing gates is to ‘target harden’ all properties on either side of the alleyway, however the nature of some of the crimes and incidents and the cost of such action makes this alternative unrealistic and cost prohibitive.
