Public Rights of Way - Proposal to restrict public rights over an alleyway in Clifton Ward, York using Gating Order

Decision Maker: Corporate Director of Economy and Place

Decision status: Awaiting Implementation

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


Authorisation is granted to make a Draft Gating Order under Section 129A of the Highways Act 1980, to restrict access along an alleyway between Fountayne Street and Scaife Street, Holgate Ward.

Options Considered:

Option 1 - This option would allow a Draft Gating Order to be advertised and statutory consultation to be carried out.

Option 2 - This option would leave the alleyways open for use by the public and the incidents of crime and ASB are therefore likely to continue at their current level.

Options Rejected:

Option 2 was rejected.
