Alleyways in North East Lincolnshire are privately owned, and the responsibility for keeping them clean is with all residents that back and side onto them.

Clear It! Voluntary community clean ups

North East Lincolnshire Council has launched a new scheme to help communities safely clean an alleyway or open space in their neighbourhood.

Applications have closed for now, but check back here for future updates.

For more information can be found on the Clear It – Voluntary Community Clearance form.

Gated alleyways

Residents are responsible for the management and maintenance of gated alleyways. Residents would need agreement from all the relevant households before the installation of a gated alleyway. The Council do not fund the installation or upkeep of gated alleyway projects.


To report fly-tipping in the area complete our Fly-tipping form.

If fly-tipping is occurring and there is enough evidence, the Council can take enforcement action. But if the problem is general waste and the Council can’t identify an individual responsible, all residents of adjoining properties may be held collectively responsible.

Please remember that alleyways in North East Lincolnshire are private land and the responsibility for keeping them clean lies with all residents that have access over them.
