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.
