Alleygates plan in attempt to combat crime in Darwen
1:40pm Tuesday 11th September 2012 in News
PLANS have been launched to install crime-stopping alley gates behind several residential streets in Earcroft, Darwen.
Blackburn with Darwen Council wants them at the rears of 145-157 Blackburn Road (odds), 2-46 Hollins Grove Street (evens), and 3-31 Clarence Street (odds). The council has installed the lockable gates in several shared alleys across the borough, and said it helps to curb flytipping, vandalism and littering.
