Alley gates

The Blackburn with Darwen subsidised alley gating programme is now closed.

If you would like to explore a private or community funded scheme, an application for a PSPO would be required.

The Council will investigate your request but to continue with any application for a PSPO, it will need to meet our threshold to justify and substantiate any such application proceeding.
