The Council has agreed to put security gates on the following back alleys

  • Millfield Road/Thorpe Street
  • Thorpe Street/Russell Street
  • Russell Street/Scott Street
  • Scott Street/Nunmill Street

The change means that refuse will in future be collected from the front of properties.

The proposals were controversial but objections were overuled last week by the Cabinet member (Cllr Merrett)

The plan is expected to cost around £18,000 to implement and should improve security for properties backing onto the lanes involved.

The Nunmill Street/Bishopthorpe Road alleyway will remain open.
