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 launched a scheme to help communities safely clean up an alleyway or open space in their neighbourhood.

Thanks to last year’s Clean-it scheme, volunteers worked with the council to clear six alleyways and other problem areas.

This included land beside garages in Great Coates, Weelsby Street, Durban Road, Algernon Street, Arthur Street, St Helier’s Road and Wellington Street.


Applications have now closed.

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.
